Flight 232 Memorial

Larsen Park Rd on the Riverfront
Sioux City , IA 51101

On July 19, 1989, en route from Denver to Philadelphia, United Flight 232 had its number two engine explode. This destroyed all of its hydraulic systems, which should have made the plane impossible to control — but somehow its pilots kept it airborne for 44 minutes, long enough to crash-land at Sioux City’s airport. The right wing tore off and the fuel tanks blew up, but 185 people came out alive. One hard-to-forget image from the crash news coverage is of passengers wandering injured and dazed in a field of corn stalks next to the runway (Or are we thinking of the scene inspired by it in the 1993 film Fearless?). The Flight 232 Memorial commemorates the rescue efforts undertaken by the Sioux City community after the crash. A statue depicts one of the news photos taken that day, of Iowa National Guard Lt. Col. Dennis Nielson carrying a 3-year old child to safety.

Spanning 1,500 acres along the Missouri River, this area was donated to the people of South Dakota in 1984 by Mary and Maud Adams, granddaughters of original homesteader Stephen Searls Adams. They envisioned the area as a place where people, particularly youth, could enjoy the land and learn more about the natural world surrounding them. Mary and Maud wanted to give others a “place for inner renewal.” Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve features close to 10 miles of limestone trails that wind through prairie, forest and along the riverbank. With over 100 species of birds, a variety of native plants and a number of different animals, visitors are immersed in nature.  Restored historical buildings include: Lamont Country School, Sha/Adams House, Stavenger Lutheran Church and Brusseau Cabin.

The North Sioux City/McCook Lake Trail is a paved sidepath trail that runs for over four miles through the suburban community of North Sioux City. The concrete trail may not be much to look at, with sounds from the nearby interstate interfering with the natural tranquility that many trails offer, but the pathway does offer a convenient means for cyclists and pedestrians to travel across the small city. Things get a bit more scenic on the northern end of the trail, where McCook Lake and a variety of surrounding parks and recreation sites provide a more pleasant accompaniment to the trail. The path begins in the south at the junction of Military Road and River Drive; continuing west along River Drive, the trail passes by a number of suburban neighborhoods and commercial sites as it approaches the highway underpass. Past the underpass, the trail turns north to follow the side of Streeter Drive, paralleling the highway to the east. The trail begins following Northshore Drive at the northern end of McCook Lake, and then turns south to head into the entrance of the Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve – a 1500-acre recreation site that features its own looping trail for cyclists and pedestrians.
