“A Gem in the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The wife and I were going to Mount Rushmore and decided to stop for lunch in Sioux Falls. A friend had said that there was a park that was very scenic and he thought they had food.
We looked up the park and stopped by to stretch our legs and eat. We were amazed at this little park and all the families that were enjoying the water views and the little trails.
We walked to the Falls Overlook Cafe and sat outside and ate a very nice lunch (beer and hot dogs), they had several items on the menu. Overall not big but very nice park.

“Nice park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We stopped here in May, so it was a little cold and windy. This is probably nice in the summer time, however on the day we stopped there was garbage all over---in the water, along the rocks, etc. Looked pretty unkept. The observation tower was nice to go up and look out.

“We Could Have Stayed All Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Falls Park was beautiful and fun for the whole family. Our daughter had a blast climbing on the rocks and peering into the small pools created by the falls. We were there on July 4 so the park was busy but it's so spacious we could still enjoy our own adventure. Ample parking. Very stroller/wheelchair accessible trails.
