A visit to my favorite park in South Dakota — Porter Sculpture Park.
On my road trips back and forth between South Dakota and wherever I’m calling home, I always take the time to stop at the Porter Sculpture Park, about 25 minutes west of Sioux Falls. The park is spectacular. It is open Memorial day through Labor Day. The sculptor, Wayne Porter, keeps his park open every day, rain or shine, and offers guided tours. His gorgeous dog Bambino often accompanies guests on the tours.
Park hours are 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Admission is $8.00 for adults, $4.00 for youth 13 to 17, children 12 and under visit for free. To get to the park, take Exit 374 off Interstate 90. The park is RV friendly and provides a golf cart for guests with mobility issues. There are clean porta-johns on site. Mr. Porter has a guest book and encourages people to share their ideas, thoughts, and good vibes for the universal (literally).
