Perfect Summer, fall, early winter, and spring outdoor fun!

I love visiting the park with my kids, they absolutely love the falls. So pretty, adventurous, and fun. Good outdoor activity.

It was too cold and also dark, but I visited the falls for the first time in my life to see the Christmas lights. Well worth it and can't wait to check it out in daylight and nicer weather. Must check out the café too.

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.
