The falls are something to be seen. You can't go to Sioux Falls without seeing the falls. ,A very tranquil location for a picnic or a nice walk. Parking is a little tough if it is a weekend.

Passing through on our way to Branson we had missed seeing falls on way down. We stopped on our way back. Pictures on Tripadvisor don`t do it justice.Rock formation and flowing water and park is great asset to the city. This would be a great spot to spend an afternoon at.

Falls park is scenic, relaxing and free to the public. Best of all, it's not "tourist trappy". There was much historic information and a tower to overlook the park. We were happily surprised that we could actually walk on the rocks in the falls. Also, the gift shop had reasonable prices for clothes and souvenirs. I bought a baseball cap... More

I'm not sure you can adequately describe these quartzite falls in the center of the city. I just know that all our visitors to Sioux Falls love it and ask to return. One of the best features is that, while there is an observatory tower, you can also walk out on the rocks right up to the cascades. Spectacular during... More

Free, easy to get to, and beautiful scenery right in the downtown Sioux Falls area. What is not to like? One of the best natural sites I have ever seen that is located right inside a city. So glad I made the time to visit in my short stay in Sioux Falls. The only disappointment was that the visitor's center... More

It's free, easy to get to and nice to looks at (even in bad weather) so go! If you're in the area, why would you not go?

after some hour in the night, those waters stink really strong... disgusting. Early, it is really a nice place to be and see the water running. and walk besides the water..

Fun for couples, singles, and families. From the beauty of nature to the scientific of geology and hydrology. Can be stunning near sunset. All seasons of the year. Even when it's cold the park is beautiful and people are out.

We went here with my son and his girlfriend. It was impressive to see. Had it been a bit warmer, it would have been fun to explore more fully. I can imagine kids loving it, armed with advice about not going too close to the edge.
