Falls Park - Review

The Falls Parkis one of the first buildings to be built in the city. A gorgeous waterfall (the main falls) is a highlight of the park while the Queen Bee Mill, Observation tower, Seney Island located upstream at the main waterfall, the Horse barn that dates back to the 19th century(currently used for art exhibits) and the fabulous ‘Falls Overlook Cafe’, offer a relaxing time as you take in the beautiful view all around.

The ‘Phillips to the falls’ walking/driving route caters to hikers while the many permanent sculptures that adorn the whole space, add a lovely touch to the greenery. If you are in the city during winter season, do visit the park to experience its romantic charm when the gorgeous lights cover the whole place.

Falls Park, Sioux Falls Reviews

  • Well, it's five stars compared to other sites here. They've done an amazing job of developing Falls Park since I first remember going, which seems very appropriate for the namesake of your city! The sidewalks, overlooks, and ability to free-roam still are what make the park something special for everyone. The gift shop and observation tower are very nice also. The winter lights are amazing! In the summer, it's also well-lit on the lower falls at night, but I look forward to more development of the upper falls. It is buggy, from late May through September, so plan for that, and please, please watch your kids and make sure that even the older ones understand the power of that raging water!

  • Fantastic park on the Big Sioux River. We had Ana amazing time just wandering all around admiring the falls. The tower was really cool too. At the top we could see for days. I went around and read each of the markers and thoroughly explored the surrounding area while my kids meandered all over the park trying to find ducks. Definitely a must see place if you’re ever in Sioux Falls.

  • Didn't expect such a really nice park in the middle of an industrial part of a smaller town. Very well kept, huge grounds, picturesque views from the observation tower, very friendly visitor center staff. Was here very briefly but can easily see how one can make a day out of visiting here. Very enjoyable and without the big crowds of famous Falls.

  • What a beautiful sight far more than I was expecting, this is worth a drive. We had a great time and came back multiple times to see sunsets in the falls in the middle of the day we also went up to the top of the observation tower which is very fun to both feel the wind and see the falls from that height. This place is worth a stop I would recommend family and friends and I’m sure will drive back just to see this beautiful place.

  • This would have been a wonderful visit if it wasn't so cold and windy today. Even so, it was very enjoyable. The falls were pretty, the trails well kept, and the overlooks well placed. We went to the top of the tower adjacent to the gift shop, and the view from up there was absolutely stunning. The two ladies in the gift shop were extremely friendly, and they were knowledgeable and eager to answer all our questions. If I'm ever in the area when the weather is nice, I'll definitely go back!
