First Impression Of Medora
Each year thousands of families travel to and through Medora to take in all sorts of entertainment and adventure. The Medora Entry Park is the newest in a series of major investments in Medora to enhance and expand the experience our visitors and guests have. The idea and concept is driven in large part by the long-held awareness of the need to create attractions and attractors for what we have come to call the "missing middle"; young people in their teens and their families. The Entry Park is just the attraction young families and grandparents have been waiting for.
The Park is sure to live up to its name with a combination of free and ticketed attractions, including an all-new mini golf, Medora's own "slant house", a zero-entry pool and 400 foot long lazy river, a community splash pad, a kid-friendly "jump pillow", and shade structures. Plus, one of the new main attractions, a Badlands Zipline Ride.
This park will encourage the "more adventurous" members of the family to experience the picturesque buttes by taking a marked climbing route to the top of the Badlands overlooking Historic Medora, where they'll find native geology and vegitation, and the park may one day showcase the remarkable personalities of Medora through statues or other historic preservation ideas.
Here are just a few of the things we have in the works for this awesome new family attraction in Medora!
This new development will incorporate the very popular, existing Children's park across the street, improve safety and access to the Badlands Motel and other guest spaces in that popular corner of town. It will also offer the community and it's visitors nearly 100 paved parking spaces.
Although geared toward a younger crowd, the entire experience will be enjoyed and utilized by young and old. It will be a place to socialize, to relax, to exercise and simply play together, surrounded by the beauty of the Badlands and the momentous history of Medora.
This is all part of creating more to do in Medora every day!
