To date, Wellmark's 3-Point Play at South Dakota State University has infused local communities with more than $115,000, enhancing infrastructure and access to recreation equipment at various parks.
Two different parks in the community of Arlington are being enhanced thanks to funding from the 3-Point Play program. Arlington installed a new 9-hole disc golf course — including tee pads and netted baskets — at one park, as well as playground equipment for younger children at another park.
For the community of Brookings, funds from previous seasons of the 3-Point Play program enabled the city to enhance Dakota Nature Park. In addition to installing new volleyball courts, the city expanded and groomed the trail infrastructure. The city also purchased new fitness equipment, including snowshoes, youth fishing gear, kayaks, adaptive bicycles and family cycling setups — all available for community use.
These community health improvement projects, made possible through the 3-Point Play program, are providing South Dakotans access to more free health and wellness spaces and equipment. It's just one of the many ways Wellmark is helping build vibrant, active communities. Learn more about Wellmark's community engagement initiatives.
