The South Dakota Department of Sport Fishing and Parks is holding two open houses on the future of the Spring Creek Country Club near Sioux Falls, which will eventually become state property.
Al Nedved is deputy director of state parks and said the state and the South Dakota Parks and Wildlife Foundation want public input on how to use the land.
âThe Spring Creek golf course will eventually become the property of the Parks and Wildlife Foundation, and will eventually be transferred to the department in 2025,â he said. âSo what we’re doing is trying to find the most appropriate use and opportunities in Good Earth State Park.
Nedved said the location of the property makes it unique.
âIt’s submerged in some residential areas, it’s not perfectly connected to Good Earth State Park. He has a few points of contact, but his ability to be connected to the park is still a bit uncertain, “he said.” So there is a lot to consider there. “
The open houses are today at the Sioux Falls Outdoor Campus from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and at the Good Earth State Park Visitor Center from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Further opportunities for public participation will be announced following the open houses.
