Legacy Commons is a community gathering area adjacent to the Memorial Park Promenade. While the Promenade encourages people to walk between Downtown Rapid City and the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center, Legacy Commons offers a destination for more community members and visitors to stay and enjoy Memorial Park. In keeping with the Remembrance and Renewal theme of the 2012 40th anniversary of the 1972 flood, Legacy Commons has features to help remember the flood while offering new features for current and future generations.

Remembrance features include a coordinated look at existing memorials, and includes moving the war memorial from its current location to a prominent place adjacent to the Promenade and adding a spray jet fountain in the pond that resembles the smaller spray in the existing flood memorial.
