“Water fall from the Big Sioux River”

The Falls of the Big Sioux River have been a focus of life in the region throughout history. Native American peoples were the first to visit the falls and bring stories of them to European explorers. They have been the center of recreation and industry since the founding of the city in 1856.

At Falls Park, located at North Phillips Avenue and Falls Park Drive, visitors can see the city's namesake as well as some of the first buildings built in Sioux Falls.

Today the park covers 123 acres. An average of 7,400 gallons of water drop 100 feet over the course of the Falls each second.

It was beautiful but the area really stunk! I'm not sure where the smell was coming from but it really bothered us. We got our pictures and left pretty quickly.

Nice little man made falls. Smell does create a question of whether or not man needs to be damming so many rivers...

Really beautiful stop. It's right in the middle of a park and you will think that there is no way a waterfall is here...but there is. Great for people with dogs since it is an actual park.
