Located 25 minutes from Sioux Falls, Parker is the “community” that larger cities can’t be. Neighbors helping one another, business owners who know your name and school spirit that many of us remember as children, plus the convenience of a vibrant Main Street with retail, restaurants and more.

Parker has an excellent school district with an average class size of 15 students. The district is accredited by the North Central Association. If you’re trying to get back to your roots, Parker is the place to plant your seed. Come grow with us in Parker, South Dakota where “Life’s a Little Bigger in a Small Town.”

Visit Instructions:
To post a log to an existing U.S. Post Office waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the post office in the background if that is possible.

A description of your Post Office is required, such as when it was built, history, outstanding or unique features, population of the city or town, just do a quick internet search and find an interesting bit of information about the city or town and add it to the long description, to make it more interesting. Even just adding in the population of the area can give others an idea of how many people this post office serves. This description should be at least three sentences.

If your Post Office has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
Including your gps device in the picture is not necessary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable.
