We visit here every time we come and spend a couple hours. It is beautiful with walking paths around, an old mill foundation to read about, and a cafe for lunch or a snack.

Worth the stop to see the falls. We climbed the tower and also did a little hike around. Incredible that they are just there in the north part of the city.

Sioux City has done a great job expanding this park along the river and famed falls, including an observation deck and restaurant/bars. A bit north of downtown, but plenty of parking and a shuttle bus. A great place to wander, especially on a sunny summer day.

This is a nice park for Sioux Falls. We stopped here for a walk around after quite a bit of driving and it was scenic with a lot of families there walking around.

The falls were at their peak when I was there due to the abundant rain. It was absolutely gorgeous. The park was well kept and there was more to see than I first thought. It's a great place to stop and enjoy nature. Very pretty sight.

What a nice park area in Sioux Falls! The multiple walkways around the Falls allow for viewing from all sides, or simply sitting to take in the beauty and enjoy the roar of the water. Climb to the top of the tower for an interesting perspective.

We arrived in time for the Riverfest celebration and had a wonderful time at Falls Park walking the paths along the beautiful stones on the river bank, sitting on the benches, looking at the falls and watching dozens of hot air balloons rise above the trees to kick off the festival. The view from the walking bridge over the river... More

The falls were very pretty. The smell on the other hand in that area was something else. Apparently there is a meat plant nearby and that is what we were smelling. uggg

Very easy to find. It was very beautiful surroundings in this park. Did not even know about this park, but our hotel staff recommended we check it out. Glad we took his advice.
