Downtown Rapid City/ West Boulevard & Community Camaraderie
West Boulevard is picturesque with its tree-lined streets and eclectic homes. Residents of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds fill the houses and stroll the sidewalks. Sustainable living is a value shared amongst residents who promote restoring historical features that define both the structure of one’s home and its property. The West Boulevard Neighborhood Association works to preserve the integrity of the oldest district in Rapid City as a residential neighborhood, not a commercial opportunity. This historic district is a hot commodity. Prospective home buyers love the hype, while current homeowners love the history.
Halloween holds a long-standing tradition on West Blvd, where drones of zombies, superheroes, and other characters bring the dead to life with their squeals and chills, high shrieks and pitter-patter feet.
West Boulevard provides easy access to Skyline Drive, where you can enter the Skyline hiking trail less than one mile from downtown. Random spurs define the trail path as it winds through a smaller area. (Trail Length: 3-6 Miles (development continues) Trail Level: Moderate to Strenuous)
Skyline Drive also intersects Dinosaur Park where you can freely roam the top of the hill while visualizing dinosaurs doing the same below.

West Boulevard and Downtown families enjoy a solid school community, beginning with Woodrow Wilson Elementary: I have 2 children who currently attend Wilson . . . We could not be happier with the teachers, administration and the diverse student population. Wilson is one of the last true ‘neighborhood’ schools. The atmosphere is almost family like. – submitted by a parent @ www.greatschool.org.
