We drove down and took several pictures of the park. I loved the fact that all the trees where lit up and that there was a theme to each area of the falls park. I love the water fall there and the statue that are around the park. It is worth your time to spend a few days here. There... More

I traveled to Nebraska from North Dakota, and I stopped in Sioux Falls. It was around December, sure it was cold, but at night they had lights hung up around the park for the holiday season, and it made an amazing view. I should have brought family with me, they would have loved the view.

It's a nice relaxing place. The fall had a low water level at the time we visited and I think it would have been better if the water level was high. The park has many foot paths for walking. There are plenty of picnic tables too. The only minus point I have is the cleanliness. The tables and paths were... More

We are relatively new to this area and one of the first places we visited was Fals Park. What a gem! Whenever we get visitors we throw them in the car, something they sometimes don't always appreciate since they're already traveling, but we just love to show them the park and then have a meal at Carnival Brazilian Restaurant. Don't... More

Great scenic view and short walking trails around waterfalls, and rocks around the falls. We made a point to visit close to sunset and the vibrant colors around the rocks were amazing! My husband is an avid photographer and love taking shots of waterfalls, so this was a great spot. Our five year old daughter loved climbing all around the... More

Beautiful scenery and walking trails. This is an absolute must on your next trip to the area. You can easily walk from downtown where you can partake in the Sculpture Walk. It leaves you with a majestic feeling. The waterfalls are just so relaxing and it makes us all take pause in the business of our lives and just enjoy... More

Frankly, a few years back this wasn't much to see. It's evolved into an attractive park with a few attractions and is great to see when. They have. The Christmas lights up.

This is a gem of a park just off Phillips Avenue north of downtown Sioux Falls where the waters of the Sioux River flow over the granite that the city rest upon. The city has done a remarkable job making this a very special place and we always visit while we are in town. Today it was very cold and... More
