It looks soo beautiful. My son loves it and it seems like such a peaceful place. I could sit and listen to the water fall for hours and hours and still not want to leave.

We got into Sioux Falls a little earlier than expected for a one-night stop and went over to Falls Park to kill some time. This really is a very nice park and the falls are very interesting to see. It is a large park area that is extremely well maintained. There is a free overlook tower (about 5 stories high)... More

I used Sioux Falls as a stopping point between my two locations: Keystone SD & Fond Du Lac, WI. The Falls is a nice relaxing place to visit. They run daily free trolley rides into the centre of downtown Sioux Falls. The summer evening light show is a must see, the laser light show starts at 9.30 pm each night... More

This was a truly lovely area. We ate at the cafe that is at the site and it was very good. It was a cold windy day, so we did not walk around the falls like you could, but on a nice warmer day it would have been fun. Would recommend stopping and seeing this area if you are traveling... More

What a beautiful park, and close to the renovated downtown area. Sioux Falls knows how to make the best of a river location. You could spend hours at the park enjoying the view, the sounds of the river and the people. We didn't take pictures but plan a return trip in the future.

Despite the fact that my husband had to point out to me that Sioux Falls is called Sioux Falls because of the fallllllllllsss...I loved Falls Park. The kids had a great time. We stopped just to check it out and stayed three or four hours. The falls are pretty and the kids had a blast climbing on the rocks, dipping... More

My boyfriend and I drove to Sioux Falls specifically for the day (we live 2 hours away) to see Falls park and visit a few sopts downtown. I have to say that Falls Park alone was worth the drive. It is BEAUTIFUL! It was not Niagra falls or anything like that. But it is so unexpected! I love how you... More

We visited Falls Park one evening on our trip. We were very impressed with the laser light show. It was a great experience that taught a little bit about the history of Sioux Falls. This is a must see if you visit Sioux Falls!

We saw this park in a South dakota ad in MIdwest Living Magazine and decided to make it our Anniversary Trip this year. This is a very nice park. Clean with nice paved walkways. I like that you can get so close to the falls, going right out on the rocks. The observation tower was great. And it is handicapped... More

Very, very impressive. Falls Park has some great waterfalls with booming sounds of water located in an tranquil park setting. The Park is very good size with bike and walking paths, lots of green space for picnics, a cafe, observation tour and arts center. All mixed in among the river, water falls and lots of exposed pink quartzite. Very pretty... More
