Great nature experience

We expected the falls to be impressive, but the water is obviously of good quality, based on the amount of bird life we observed enjoying the park and river.

The Falls are beautiful. There is a lot of history and signs to read that make exploring and wandering around the entire park interesting and fun. Lots of look out points and photo opportunities, a tower that gives you a birds eye view, and you can get as close to the Falls as you want. Parking was a bit of... More

The park is easily the highlight of a trip to Sioux Falls. Many areas on both sides for photos and getting splashed. Don't miss it.

We decided to check out the Falls since we had time to kill while in town for a couple concerts. Kinda cool to see basically right in town - was pretty. But after you've seen waterfalls at Yellowstone, nothing to get too excited about.

Big enough to roam, small enough you can see it all. If you are wearing the right kind of shoes and have a little courage you will see some great views of the falls!

Nice running paths around the falls. I'd say it's a nice 1 1/2 run around the falls and over numerous bridges.

There is free parking in the park in several different areas. You can also part downtown to walk there. The park is beautiful and there is a lot of history there if you have time to explore. If you are not afraid of heights make sure you go in the tower. It is a spectacular spot to see the whole... More
