My wife and I headed up to Falls Park in the morning on a Sunday, though it was sprinkling, it turned out to be a great time to visit. The visitors center and observation tower were open to get out of the heavier rain, and the foot traffic was relatively slow. The signage is very informative about the history of the city and South Dakota. A great place to relax, enjoy natural beauty, and be active.

We were at Falls Park with 6 grandchildren, ages 1-10. The older ones loved scrambling around on the rocks, and the younger ones were able to climb, too with a little help! The paths were paved--great for the baby stroller.We also walked up the steps or took the elevator up the observation tower where the view of the area impressed us all. THe gift shop had plenty of inexpensive ideas for the kids!

It was magical. Driving through the park on a snowy night with all the trees lit up was so beautiful.

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.

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'.
