Falls Park is a very nice place to spend time to relax. During warmer month there are lots of different ways to take advantage of the park. Biking, walking, photo ops, picnics, relaxing and during the summer they have an evening video of the history of the area.

This a beatiful large waterfall surrounded by lots of great walking trails, a nice visitor center that lets you look out over the waterfalls, and a cafe in the summer months to grab a bite to eat. I am a local and stop in pretty regularly to see the falls.

My first visit to the park was in June. There is plenty of parking, great walkways and good access to view the falls and some of the buildings. Be sure to take the time to read the signs! They provide information about the falls and the mill. There were plenty of families and couples walking around enjoying the weather, peaceful... More

We went there to see the reason Sioux Falls is called Sioux Falls. It's a peaceful park in the middle of a small urban area--a nice getaway for a leisurely stroll or a place to rest on a Summer's day.

Takes just a couple of minutes from downtown. The signs are few, and before you know it you will have missed the turn, the signage should be reviewed as this is a must see for visitors and highlights the beauty of the area.

Was the perfect side trip on our road trip. This place is so beautiful it almost doesn't look real. Great place to rest or have a picnic for a couple hours.

So fun to be able to visit the Falls and see all the restoration they have done in the past few years and it's all decked out for Christmas. It's a beautiful walk when it's not freezing cold like it was when we visited but the lights were still fun to check out.

Better to visit in warmer weather if you can, but even on this chilly/snowy afternoon the road around the park allowed us to drive close enough to get a good view of the river and the falls. Beautiful
