“Awesome Falls in the middle of the City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

The Sioux Falls made an incredible sight with water cascading down over the rocky ledges for over 100 yards. The whole area was beautifully landscaped with pathways and bridges. Be sure to climb up to the Viewing Tower for some spectacular photos. There also is a small gift shop there. Although there are some steps here and there it is a mostly wheelchair friendly area. Definitely worth a visit.

“Nothing Special Here”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

This is not in any way a spectacular attraction. If you're in the area it's worth passing by to take a look but I wouldn't go out of my way for this. I'm actually surprised they even qualify as 'falls'.

“Summer or Winter!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Falls Park is a wonderful venue to see no matter what time of year it is. In warmer weather you can lounge around and listen to the falls or venture around on the trails and walkways. In the winter, come at night and enjoy a frozen landscape with thousands of lights at Christmastime. The park has something for everyone to enjoy!

Nice clean attraction. No refuse lying around anywhere. Few people early in the morning or at night. Well lit at night.

“5 stars are not enough!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

We went there after dark when they turned the lights and music on ... It was amazing! Really cold dark night, a lot of ice, beautiful waterfall and sound of running water mixed with the holiday tunes in the air and the lights on the trees. It's a perfect harmony of the natural beauty of the falls with the lights and the music. There are a lot of great view points - a few bridges, rocky river bank, the observation tower, walking paths between the trees - what a great way to spend an evening! We came back totally refreshed and recharged, laughing and running around. 5 stars are not enough!
