Donations Finish Funding of Safe Playground

Several donations will help make a new playground north of Rapid City a reality. A KOTA news story had said funding for the Seth Brien Memorial Park was stuck at $10,000, about $2,500 short. A follow-up report shared that Westhills Village residents, employees of Black Hills Federal Credit Union, and the local firefighter's union had all made donations totaling more than $4,000.

The project, once completed, will provide a playground for the area where Seth Brien was hit and killed by a car while playing in the road.

More information on Rapid City's parks can be found in the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archive.
