Blair is unique among many towns our size in that recreational programs for children, youth and adults are provided through several not-for-profit organizations and volunteer clubs, not through a Recreation Department run by the City. Many of these recreational facilities are constructed on city-owned property, and Keno Funds are provided to enable them to maintain and enhance the facilities.
A list of these, and other local recreational facilities, are shown in the left-hand column or in the Misc. Facilities below.
Disc Golf Course - Black Elk-Neihardt Park
This scenic nine-hole course was established in Black Elk-Neihardt Park in 2005. The course begins near the northeast end of the parking lot. A map of the course, together with information about disc golf activities, is posted near the first hole. Contributions by area businesses assisted development of the course.
River Wilds Golf Club and Course – 14002 North Highway 75
For information on this 18-hole course, see River Wilds Golf Club
Skateboard Park - Steyer Park
The Skateboard Park in Steyer Park was established in 2004. The park can be accessed from Lafayette Street, one block south of Butler Street. The park was made possible through Keno Funds and a city-wide fund-raising drive. Several young Blair skateboarders proposed this park; they were also involved in its design and participated in the fund-raising drive.
