This is a very pretty place with wonderful rock formations and at times a lazy river flowing. At other times it can be a raging river during spring snow melt or heavy rains. Well worth the time to visit. Nice walking trails.

This is a great park, you can come many times because each time the water is running at a different level it is interesting.

The Falls are very beautiful to take pictures or to just hang out. I would recommend The Falls to everyone of any age.

Nice Park and the falls are nice but the best time is spring when the water is higher! There are picnic tables for a nice lunch for two or as a family. The city is slowly making it look better and better I noticed.

If you are looking for falls that are like Niagara Falls, this isn't for you. However, if you are looking for a nice peaceful place to visit, this is a good place. If there has been a lot of snow the previous winter, and the river is high, the falls are much more dramatic. However, it is good any time... More

The falls are bathed in rotating colors at night and the music and laser light show is well worth an evening trip to the falls. However, I've heard they are doing away with the laser light show! I wonder if they'll quit lighting the falls too. On a comfortable day, it's a great place to visit. The old Queen Bee... More

The Falls Park (day or night) is a wonderful experience. You can walk on the rocks, great photo op, and at night there is a light show. During the Christmas season, the all the trees are lit up with Christmas lights. The Plaques situation around the park give the history of the falls. It has an interesting past. The only... More

Wild in the spring, tame in the summer, always a great place to tour. An attraction to all who have viewed it, going back to the native Indians of the area, and locals who attend light shows today.

A nice stop if you are in Sioux Falls, but wouldn't go to Sioux Falls just for the park. Very nicely landscaped. A lot of improvements have been made over the years. More like rapids than falls, but that's ok. When we were there it smelled like a feed lot. We noticed the John Morrell plant nearby and wondered if... More

The observation tower was in good shape and you could see a lot from the top. The area around the falls is in nice shape. The falls themselves are gorgeous.
