Rapid Creek

Memorial Park in downtown Rapid City, one of the many parks created inside the green area designated along Rapid Creek after the Flood of '72, and dedicated as a memorial to the 238 people who lost their lives in the flood.

Berlin Wall segments

Two segments of the Berlin Wall stand in Memorial Park. 

The two wall sections are each 12-feet tall and stand as a sobering reminder of the differences between freedom and control. In front of the Berlin Wall sections are two iron “tank traps” – wicked looking iron X’s that stand about three-feet tall and used to serve as extra safeguards for the wall on the Communist controlled East Germany side. ~Black Hills travel blog
