Description: To invite young children and their caregivers to explore Westside Park, the City of Yankton Department of Parks and Recreation created its Born Learning Trail. The City installed a concrete trail in the park and installed signs in English and Spanish along the path.

The City also commissioned seven local artists to decorate the trail's pavement with artwork related to the activities.
