The name says it all, a relaxing space with the sights and sounds of the river transcending the falls. Great photo op and equally spectacular at night. A must see and great place to relax and decompress.

It is a beautiful place to visit. Lots of rushing water this time. we toured the old powerhouse, climbed the tower. Which offered an excellent view from above. Also a nice hike around the falls.

The falls, and tower, offer a gorgeous overlook of the falls, and larger Sioux Falls community. Nice activity on a nice day.

You can read elsewhere how this park was developed from a dirty wasteland. All I'll say is that it is a lovely park, where the city's namesake falls are showcased beautifully. Free parking on site, and everywhere super-well presented. No litter, no graffiti. A place...More

A beautiful place to enjoy a nice fall day. Lots of area to explore and enjoy nature. The overlook tower is a must. The history of the area is noted as well.

It's Sioux Falls, so if you're traveling through, might as well see the namesake falls. There is a nice walking path to stretch your legs and take photos.

It’s a fine family adventure with a river walkway. It’s clean, well maintained, pet friendly and a nice place to visit. Informative signs give a history of the area and explains the geology. 10 years ago, I’m told, the area was a run-down industrial area...More

We only stayed in Sioux Falls one night so I'm not real familiar with the area. However we stayed at the Country Inn and Suites which is right on the riverwalk - a beautiful area. (I highly recommend this hotel.) We drove to... More

I don't know for sure. There is a large lot across from the Falls Park and looks empty and available. Maybe call the Sioux Falls Tourism office?
