Little Jon Memorial Park & Camp Ground
The Wall that Love built
 Little Jon Memorial Park is built and named after a 9-year old boy who died in a golf cart accident in the Rapid City, SD area. Little Jon played here and called this home. He liked playing with other children, and he especially loved going to the park.

The "Wall That Love Built" is for those who have lost their young loved ones and want a lasting memorial for them. The "Wall That Love Built" is 100-feet long and 8-feet high, and is made of exposed aggregate cement. Plaques can be purchased and placed on the "Wall That Love Built" with the child's name and dates. The "Wall That Love Built" has a rock garden around it so you may place flowers and mementos if you wish.

Cabins are available on this 30-acre park on behalf of cancer survivors and those suffering from this awful disease for getaways and to relax while enjoying Little Jon Memorial Park and the Black Hills area.

History Of Little Jon Memorial Park

30-Acres of land was purchased specifically for and in memory of Jonathan James Howe by his grandparents, Alvin and Jean Howe. Jon was born in 1994 and was lost to those who love him in 2003 in an accident while riding on a golf cart. Jon was a very happy and energetic little boy who loved parks and playing with other children. He played the piano, and enjoyed going to church and church functions with his grandma. He felt closest to his grandpa while riding in the dump trucks and watching him build roads. Jon used to play on the land that is now the location of Little Jon Memorial Park and The"Wall That Love Built".
