Tallgrass Landscape Architecture teamed with Stanley Design Group to create the Robbinsdale Park Master Plan. The plan unfolded over a year long process, allowing generous public input, and a comprehensive plan to be developed. Tallgrass supported the planning throughout the entire process by providing analysis, public meeting facilitation, concept development, master planning, graphics, and more - all in partnership with our partner firm.
The plan was initiated by Rapid City Parks and Recreation as a part of and in reaction to a large stormwater project necessary in the north west and west portions of the park. Parks saw this as an opportunity to address planning needs for the entire park and provide better recreation services on the east side of town.
This master plan is the next step in the park’s evolution and will guide development of the park for the next 15 to 25 years. Robbinsdale Park is divided by land form and use into three distinct park types; the Neighborhood Park, the Sports Park, and the Nature Park. The Master Plan retains the character of each of these areas,adjusting and adding improvements that respond to stakeholder needs in those areas. Connecting these three areas is a re-aligned park street and new, more evenly distributed parking.
Phase 1 Projects, including a new BMX track and additional Little League Fields were completed in 2018.
