US (SD): Rapid City Greenhouse takes major steps toward completion

1 Min Read

If you ever find yourself appreciating the flowers and plant life at the many parks here in Rapid City, you have the city greenhouse to thank.

About two months ago we reported on Rapid City building a newer, much bigger greenhouse for Parks and Recreation to use in supplying our gardens with flowers and keeping Rapid City beautiful. Since then, crews have been hard at work getting the greenhouse ready.

“Yeah, we’re just kinda getting the finishing touches on the greenhouse. The project started last fall we had the foundation work done and then this spring when the temperatures warmed up a little we had the greenhouse installation crew show up. The installation went very well and right now they’re finishing the electrical and HVAC stuff inside,” Scott Anderson, the City Division Parks Manager for Rapid City, said.

This new greenhouse will be a significant upgrade from the one used previously.
