The falls are very pretty and the park is well maintained with easy cement walking paths that give good views of the falls. ADA accessible in my opinion. There appears to be a restaurant in one of the buildings that would have a very nice view, but was not open at the early hour I was there. The flour mill... More

I appreciated that they had built a bridge over the bottom of the falls so you could get a good picture without people is front of you. Lots of free parking also.

My boyfriend and I visit the falls area before we went to a concert at the Icon Lounge. It was a great place to walk, hang out, exercise, picnic, and host a gathering: formal or informal. It was fun to check out the buildings around the falls area.

Obviously visiting the city and couldn't resist going to falls park. It's really pretty, green belt with the falls running through it. Easy to see why it's an attraction here, it's a beautiful stop.

I decided to drop by the falls when I arrived into town since it is so close to the airport and I am so glad that I did! It was absolutely beautiful and unexpected!! Just gorgeous and all ages can appreciate the beauty of it. The rocks are perfect for stepping on and exploring even closer to the falls! Don't... More

The Falls are so calming and beautiful. It is a place to come with your family or to just come and sit alone and enjoy the beauty! Bring your camera and get some good pictures of the water and its beauty.

We go to Falls Park everytime we are in Sioux Falls. It's just darn beautiful and breathtaking. The only issue is the smell from the meat packaging plant. Yuck!

Nice little water fall typical, many small cities have similar. Unfortunately this one is buggy and dirty. Rude staff as well at the visitor center. Sioux Falls was a dirty ugly small city not worth the stop
