RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - The city of Rapid City has created a comprehensive list of Pennington Counties’ outdoor opportunities, available to anyone with an internet connection and they are trying to spread the word.

From hiking trails to playgrounds, the Pennington Outdoors site is a place for tourists and community members to find recreational opportunities in the area.

The website allows you to search for the types of recreational activities that appeal to you and eventually, every option will include a photo, so you know exactly what the park or trail entails.

The site was launched more than a year ago, and the creator hopes it will gain traction as life returns to normal.

He said as a parent, this is a great tool.

”I have a daughter and you know, when I started making the app, I didn’t even know where most of the playgrounds were and I could have benefited from them,” said Adam Weaver, a GIS analyst for the city. “If you’re trying to find new places to take your kids and new things to enjoy, you can kind of search around and look for specific things.”

Rapid City alone has more than 30 parks, all of which can be found on the website.

The President’s Walk is also included and the app gives you detailed information on each famous face.
