  • Very pleasantly surprised with the beauty of the very well kept park and the falls themselves were a joy to see. We could have spent more time there but this was a stop on our travels.  more »
  • It is always fun to see the Falls in the winter with the lights and Christmas music. Fun to go as a could, entertain guests, enjoy the beauty of the scenery. The 4 seasons make it great for all.  more »
  • Possibly one of the best light displays in Midwest. Just amazing. Every year more lights are added, if in Sioux Falls this is a must see  more »

  • Beautiful area. A great way to spend the day/evening whether you're a local or just visiting. Especially when they have the Christmas lights set up and light the Falls. If your looking for a fun photography night out or are just looking to enjoy a good walk through the lights with the sights and sounds of falling water surrounding you, don't miss out on Falls Park. Great any time of year and conveniently located to the restaurants and lodging accommodations of downtown.
  • Very nice light display throughout the whole park. Busy place. Really enjoyed the experience and walking about. Good job. Thank you city employees for the outstanding work and effort to transform the park into a beautiful night display.
  • I visited Falls Park for the first time a few weeks ago. It is so beautiful! The flowing waters is so peaceful and serene. It was rather chilly when I visited, but it was so beautiful I hardly noticed the chill. I very much look forward to revisiting in the spring and summer.
  • Have visited a number of times over the years! Always pretty no matter what time of the year. Just visited at night during Christmas time, and other than the traffic being bumper to bumper, the lights and everything to see was very pretty...just make sure your gas tank isn't close to E. :)
  • The falls themselves are super trashy (there's literally trash in the water). But the area is super nice! Fun to walk around, public restrooms, the falls are lit up in the evening. Over the Christmas holiday season, everything is lit up with Christmas lights. Fun for a date, with friends, or bringing the kids!
