|Home of free electricity!|
Marion is a small town that's seen better economic times judging by the many closed businesses I saw as I drove down their main street but Hieb Park is a really nicely maintained park boasting of two ball fields with lights and stands and an outdoor swimming pool.
|The pool complex had an adult pool and a kids wading pool.|
|No worries about sun hitting the Tank's solar panels with electric hookups.|
Here's Hieb Memorial Park's data sheet:

In addition to the swimming pool there's a small stream that feeds a large pond on one side of the park.

RadarNow! predicted high temperatures and for my three day stay in Marion it was spot on, the Tank's AC ran all day long it seemed. I was grateful for the electricity, it would have been really uncomfortable without it. Hieb Memorial Park is a really nice city park that I would recommend to anyone passing through Marion's part of South Dakota!
Thanks for reading!
