If the kids need to run off some steam Falls Park is the place to have them run around. Pack a picnic and head over to the park to enjoy the scenery of the waterfalls. There are walkways, lots of beautiful green grass and, more importantly, lots of room to run. If you don’t feel like packing a lunch you can visit the Falls Overlook Cafe located in the Light and Power Historic building
Falls Park is located in the heart of Sioux Falls and in additionally offers a visitors center, sculptures, an evening light show, and historic buildings.
If you are visiting downtown you can leave your car there and take the free trolley to the falls. It runs mid-April to mid-October, Monday-Saturday and during the winter it runs just on Saturdays. Â Sometimes its nice to have someone else drive, but if you’d like to take your own car there is ample free parking at the park.
I loved walking around and exploring the area. The waterfalls are pretty to watch. Benches located around the falls offer visitors the opportunity to sit and enjoy the scenery. Ambitious visitors can climb to the top of the tower at the visitors center to get a birds eye view of the falls and the surrounding area.
