Beautiful walking park. Frisbee golf too. It was very windy when I was there. [Benjamin Farmer, 08/29/2018]

Tower of the Four Winds

This 44-foot tower in Black Elk-Neihardt Park stands as a memorial to John G. Neihardt and Black Elk, the Lakota Sioux holy man. The tower features a mosaic that depicts Black Elk's message of peace and unity for all people. Along a paved walking trail, mosaic markers continue the "theme" of Black Elk's vision. The park also features a unique covered picnic shelterand great views of the Washington County countryside.
