Robbinsdale Park tree project nears end

RAPID CITY, S.D. – On Tuesday, crews from Rapid City Parks and Recreation planted more than 90 trees in Robbinsdale Park.

This project has been in the works for about two years and will be completed by Wednesday. This entire project was funded by a $10,000 grant from the Gwendolyn Stearns Foundation.

The overall purpose of the trees is mainly aesthetics.

“We’re trying to put some of the trees back in that were taken out,” said Andy Bernard, the urban forester for Rapid City.

Trees will be planted near the retention cell and the playground. A few will also be placed near the BMX track.
