Oyate Teca Project was awarded a grant through the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program to plan a park around Kyle Dam. The goal of this project is to improve recreational resources in our community; to give people somewhere beautiful to have fun and relax.
SDSU Landscape Architecture Program Student Presents His Concept for the Park
"The National Park Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program supports community-led natural resource conservation and outdoor recreation projects across the nation. Our national network of conservation and recreation planning professionals partners with community groups, nonprofits, tribes, and state and local governments to design trails and parks, conserve and improve access to rivers, protect special places, and create recreation opportunities."
SDSU Student Presents Her Park Ideas to the Medicine Root District Community
The plans for the park were designed by seniors in South Dakota State University’s Landscape Architecture program. The students were invited to meet with community members and develop possible plans for the park.
This year the students produced five unique visions for the park, and next year another group of students will contribute their ideas to the project.
If you are interested in contributing to the park project, please contact Oyate Teca Project at 605-455-2544 or find us on Facebook at “Oyate Teca Project.”
