Great Family Hangout

This is a great place to bring your family. It's peaceful and the falls are mezmorizing. It's a great place for all seasons.

This is a beautiful gem in the middle of the city. We flew into Sioux Falls on our way to Mt. Rushmore and were impressed by the natural beauty, history and accessibility of the falls. The conversion of the old power plant into a cafe was wonderful and provided a nice place to sit and enjoy a local brew and... More

This is a very lovely place to go in Sioux Falls. Very nice walk and beautiful scenery. The tower overlook gives you a great view of the city. Great place to go for a quiet time of reflection.

This park has such solid history in the city and the city has kept those structures and uses them innovatively to enhance the park visitors. The walkways to showcase the Falls are very well-placed. Everything going about this place makes it our favorite park.

Stopped by Falls Park and it was a great time. A lot of people taking pictures with the Falls in the background. People playing music, just chilling out sitting on benches, or just meandering around. When passing through Sioux Falls it's a must see.

This park has been wonderfully improved in recent years. It's a perfect place for picnics, walks, family gatherings, pictures, or just a place to view the Falls.

Nice park falls were smaller than I expected. Lots of people on a nice day. Lots of Pokémon stops. I just expected big falls.

This is a beautiful place to stretch your legs after s long day in the car. We spent about an hour walking the varied paths and viewing spots. The falls are impressive and the surrounding rock formations are very interesting The park and restrooms are impeccably clean and well kept. Plenty of parking and it is all free. No park... More

This is definitely the most scenic park in Sioux Falls. Enough history to be interesting, enough scenery to be appreciated, large enough to get some exercise, yet still small enough where you can experience it all in an hour or 2. There's decent river fishing near the dam area as well. Be a bit careful after the sun goes down... More
