Superb park for people of all ages which is obviously enhanced by the beautiful falls. We visited the viewing tower which gave a lovely view over the falls, the park and the surrounding area. The park was clean and well kept.

We left Minneapolis and spent the night in Sioux Falls on the way to the Black Hills. My daughter 12 and son 11 enjoyed running around on the rocks. The falls were very pretty and an unexpected treat. We climbed the tower for a wonderful view of falls and city. There is an elevator but it was being repaired. Worth... More

It's unbelievable that this beautiful place is in the middle of a city. A great place to walk around on the rocks.

Falls Park itself looks very nice and has an observation tower, gift shop, restaurant and, of course, the Falls themselves, but the smell from the nearby meat packing plant and the view of it from the park is unpleasant, kind of ruins the effect, you might say.

This was our only stop while passing through Sioux Falls. It was a pretty park, great for photos. Would not recommend making a separate trip there. But, if convenient to stop--do so.

The city had done a great job in maintaining the green space and the area around the river. Kids love to climb on the rocks that are in the river. Lots of water falls For photographers, you need to shoot pictures on both the north and south side of the river. You will need lens in the 17/18mm to 70mm... More

If you make it to Sioux Falls, SD you have to go to the downtown area and check out the falls. They are beautiful and big. It is well worth you time stopping and enjoying some of the beauty that God has created.

Falls Park should be on everyone's list that visits Sioux Falls! The grounds are immaculate and the Falls are calming and beautiful. Go to the 2nd floor of the visitor's center and the view is amazing!
