“Pretty Falls; Nice Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

This is a great stop to get out and stretch for an hour or so on a road trip. The falls are really pretty, there's historical sites, a really nice sidewalk through the whole park, and an observation tower.

“Wonderful City Park.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

My wife and I headed up to Falls Park in the morning on a Sunday, though it was sprinkling, it turned out to be a great time to visit. The visitors center and observation tower were open to get out of the heavier rain, and the foot traffic was relatively slow. The signage is very informative about the history of the city and South Dakota. A great place to relax, enjoy natural beauty, and be active.

“A grandchildren's "must-see" adventure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

We were at Falls Park with 6 grandchildren, ages 1-10. The older ones loved scrambling around on the rocks, and the younger ones were able to climb, too with a little help! The paths were paved--great for the baby stroller.We also walked up the steps or took the elevator up the observation tower where the view of the area impressed us all. THe gift shop had plenty of inexpensive ideas for the kids!

“Beautiful Christmas lights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

It was magical. Driving through the park on a snowy night with all the trees lit up was so beautiful.

“Awesome Falls in the middle of the City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

The Sioux Falls made an incredible sight with water cascading down over the rocky ledges for over 100 yards. The whole area was beautifully landscaped with pathways and bridges. Be sure to climb up to the Viewing Tower for some spectacular photos. There also is a small gift shop there. Although there are some steps here and there it is a mostly wheelchair friendly area. Definitely worth a visit.
