“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Worth the stop to see the falls. We climbed the tower and also did a little hike around. Incredible that they are just there in the north part of the city.

“Fabulous park and falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Sioux City has done a great job expanding this park along the river and famed falls, including an observation deck and restaurant/bars. A bit north of downtown, but plenty of parking and a shuttle bus. A great place to wander, especially on a sunny summer day.

“Nice Park!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

This is a nice park for Sioux Falls. We stopped here for a walk around after quite a bit of driving and it was scenic with a lot of families there walking around.

“Relaxing area to walk or sit and enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

What a nice park area in Sioux Falls! The multiple walkways around the Falls allow for viewing from all sides, or simply sitting to take in the beauty and enjoy the roar of the water. Climb to the top of the tower for an interesting perspective.

“highlight of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

We arrived in time for the Riverfest celebration and had a wonderful time at Falls Park walking the paths along the beautiful stones on the river bank, sitting on the benches, looking at the falls and watching dozens of hot air balloons rise above the trees to kick off the festival. The view from the walking bridge over the river as well as from the observation tower was really beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the tower was free to climb or you could take the free elevator. We talked to the friendly clerks at the Visitor's Center below the tower and received lots of information on local shops, churches, and other area attractions. Falls Park is a great place to start a Sioux Falls visit.
