Very pretty park

Climbed the observation and ran into a local from my hometown (Dayton Ohio). Nice views, falls are pretty, and the park is nice for kids. Nice place to take a lunch!

This is a clean, well kept park. Not much to do, other than sit back, enjoy nature and view the falls. Niagara, it is not, but then it doesn't try to be

I had never been here before but I would come back now! You don't have to hike to get to the falls, they're very accessible. You can see them from a variety of vantage points and there is information on the history all over the park. Lots of water Pokémon too!

A bit difficult to find, as I did not see the last turn sign for Falls Park. Overall, a great environment to observe the falls. Good overlooks and very well maintained.

A wonderful space for relaxing and enjoying Sioux Falls. Even with large crowds of people around you still felt like yoh had space. The falls were lovely and the overvies from the observation tower great. It was vey hot when I was there (over 30Celcius) and the falls seemed to give a little relief from the heat. Glad I visited.

The center of Sioux Falls is beautiful. Their is a cafe, visitors center, and an observation tower. A great place to take the kids or to walk your pets. My son enjoyed climbing the rock foundations, and my daughter loved the beauty.

We stopped for the night in Sioux Falls on our way out west for a Black Hills vacation. My boys (9 & 11) had been in the car for 7 hours, and this park was the perfect place for them to burn off all of their excess energy. We walked down to the park via the Riverwalk from our hotel,... More
