City named after it

The city cleaned the large park and it is very family oriented. Especially in the spring and fall it is spectacular.

This park is in the city center. The falls or rapids are centerpiece of a very pleasant park that is a perfect place for a picnic.

You can get down pretty close to the river and climb on rocks! There is wide open grassy areas, and a bridge as well. Great place for photographs. Wear... More

Falls Park is a cool place to visit. The City of Sioux Falls does a great job at the upkeep and it is a natural beauty. I highly recommend visiting it, even if you are from Sioux Falls!

No matter the time of year you visit, falls park is beautiful. Summer nights they have a free light show. Bring your date and a blanket. At Christmas time it is all lit up with lights.

It is pretty in the summer and great during the Christmas season with thousands of lights threw out the whole park. Also when it freezes the falls look great.
