There Is No Other Park In America Quite Like This One In South Dakota
There is no denying that South Dakota is a one-of-a-kind state! Whether it’s our dramatic canyons or badlands, our granite-carved monuments or delicious mom and pop restaurants, there is no shortage of uniqueness to go around the Mount Rushmore State. Speaking of unique, even the cities in SoDak are one-of-a-kind, just like our most populous community and its amazing in-town park.
Located in southeast South Dakota is Sioux Falls, which is home to an estimated 183,000, an important Native American history, and...
...the must-see Falls Park!
Nestled away in downtown Sioux Falls, Falls Park showcases the area's all-natural waterfall, which is not only important in terms of recreation and tourism, but in that it was used by both the Native Americans and early European settlers.
In addition to the 100-foot-tall falls themselves, which drop an estimated 7,400 gallons of water per second, the park is home to several scenic viewing platforms...
...the Falls Overlook Cafe...
Housed inside the old Light and Power Company building, Falls Overlook Cafe offers a huge variety of sandwiches, salads, pastries, ice cream, and more.
...and the Stockyards Ag Experience.
This one-time horse barn is now an interactive museum that walks visitors through the history of the old stockyards, beginning in 1917 and ending in 2009.
(Falls Park isn't just a summertime attraction, as evidenced by the dazzling Winter Wonderland!)
Falls Park is located at 131 E Falls Park Dr in Sioux Falls and is open daily from 5 a.m. to 12 a.m.
