Sioux Falls Flooding and Falls Park [PHOTOS]
The kids and I took a little drive around town Monday morning, Memorial Day, to take a few pictures of the parks in the city that are flooding. Spencer Park, above, looks more like a Minnesota lake than a park.
Scroll down to see the amount of water rushing through Falls Park.
Kayaking a flooded river is strongly discouraged by city officials, but not illegal. Do so at your own risk.
Falls Park is as impressive as it is loud. The roar of the water is audible for a good distance.
This had to be the most terrifying scene of the day. I snapped a photo of what appears to be a child walking along the face of the rocks near the water. I used a zoom lens to take the photo. Perhaps it was safer than what it appeared from my vantage point but parents need to make sure children stay on the sidewalks and off the rocks.
