Castle at Wylie Park
The Community

Aberdeen, S.D., is a place of blue sky, clean air and wide-open spaces. With a population of about 26,000, Aberdeen is the third-largest city in the state.


There is much to see and do in this growing, vibrant community. Aberdeen attracts businesses and students from all over the world, but still manages to maintain a safe, small-community atmosphere.


If the outdoors calls, bike the city's extensive trail system or visit 210-acre Wylie Park.


Enjoy cross-country skiing, outdoor ice skating or golf on one of three courses. Looking for a little culture? Watch a play or catch a movie at the historic Capitol Theatre.


Aberdeen is regionally known for its live music, performed year-round, indoors and out.


If you love sports events, so does this city. For the fifth straight year, Northern's men's basketball team led the NCAA Division II nation in attendance at home games. In 2011-12, the Wolves drew a total of 50,726 fans for an average of 3,382 per game.


Join packed-house excitement for the Aberdeen Wings, the city's Junior A Tier II NAHL ice hockey team.


Aberdeen's just a day trip away from metro centers Sioux Falls, S.D.; and Fargo, N.D. To learn more about what's going on in Aberdeen, visit the following websites:
