The Falls at Sioux Falls

Sioux Falls has a great downtown area.  The Falls of the Big Sioux River is at one end of town.  In the evenings our friends Steve and Therressa drive through the parking lot checking license plates.
I didn't ask where they got their checklist, but they pulled out it out and checked off a few more.   It is a perfect excuse to go to a beautiful park.  I don't know how long it has been a beautiful park but Hazel O'Conner made her contribution.
And we get to enjoy the lovely walk ways and trails. 

The Falls Park isn't very big, but it is scenic, really gorgeous.
At one end is the Observation Tower.

And more walkways, including this bridge to the other side.
It was a beautiful day.

It is not unusual to see Special Events taking place.  One evening we drove through the park and they were doing an "Romeo and Juliet" in the Outdoor Theater.
And a wedding party was taking some photos.

We really love seeing it every time we are here.
It is something you may want to see.  A beautiful park in a beautiful town.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles.  Please check back for the next edition ~ "Sculpturewalk in Sioux Falls".
