Aberdeen Attractions and Things to See

Aberdeen is located in the northeast region of the state of South Dakota, that was settled in 1880 and incorporated in 1882, after having been originally settled by the Sioux Indians in 1700. The city contains a wonderful family aquatic center that opened a few years ago and includes a zero entry pool, lazy river, concession stands, competition lap pool, a number of water slides and a great playground for the children and those that want to play there. It contains 24 public tennis courts that are located in various parts of the city and three outstanding golf courses. The Lee Park Municipal golf course and Moccasin Creek Country Club offer 18 hole courses, while the Rolling Hills Country Club sports a 9 hole course and housing development that opened in 2005.

There are numerous outdoor skating rinks that are opened in the winter, and hockey rinks that are also opened in the winter, when the weather is so cold it will freeze water in minutes and keep it that way until the later spring. There is a marvelous skate park there that provides space for skateboarding and rollerblading, that contains installed equipment like a quarter pipe, bank ramp, spine, kinked rail, ground rail and penalty box with half pyramid. The city has two disc golf courses called Kuhnert Arboretum and the Richmond Lake Disc golf course. One of the more favorite areas to locals is the Richmond Lake Recreation area that is available for a plethora of entertaining sports, as well as campers, naturalists, boaters, fishermen and swimmers. The recreation area has a small campground that includes wheelchair accessible cabins, and the park has an excellent trail system that spans out ten miles, that is a wonderful place for bikers, horse back riders and hikers that can meander the area and view an abundance of prairie plants and wildlife. The park offers numerous private and pubic boat ramps along with an accessible fishing dock, where you can fish for northern pike, crappie, bluegill, bullheads, walleye, bass, catfish and perch.

Wylie Park Recreation Area features sand volleyball courts, go-kart racing, picnic areas, camping area and access to Wylie Lake, where you can swim in this man made lake, lie on the beach and catch some rays or enjoy some time alone or with loved ones in the great paddleboats. It is linked to Storybook Land, a park with attractions that have been built from numerous children's storybooks, with a castle and train that gives visitors rides through the park. Two local barns house farm animals that you can pet and get close to, with the recent addition of the Land of Oz, that showcases the characters and attractions from the "Wizard of Oz". L. Frank Baum, who wrote the excellent book, lived in Aberdeen in the 1880s, but would leave after the newspaper he had been editing would fail.

The city has three minor league baseball teams, that have played here since the year, 1920 and the Alexander Mitchell Public Library if you should need to research or discover anything about the region, or to just to peruse the many magical books that you might want to read to relax yourself to sleep at night, if that became necessary. There are a couple of excellent institutions located here for some enjoyable time learning about the city and its people, at the Aberdeen Recreation and Cultural Center's Gallery, that provides a place to enjoy the local visual arts, and the Dacotah Prairie Museum that houses many outstanding and informative exhibits and displays about the region and its history. We already mentioned Wylie Park, but the city has Aldrich Park that houses picnic facilities and playground equipment, and the two acre Brown Park with its popular basketball court, picnic area, playground and open field play area for those that still choose to throw a Frisbee or fly a kite. It is a rural city, with lots of history and architectural delights, giving visitors a fantastic place to play, relax, learn or whatever turns your buttons.
