We stumbled across this on the day they were holding their Halloween Hike. What a fun (FREE!!!) time. Loved seeing all the costumes and the activities were a nice diversion!

A great place to visit for an hour or two. There is a nice educational play area inside and great walking trails outside. A must see when visiting Sioux Falls, SD.

This is a great place to spend 1-2 hours with kids. Walking trails, play area, and aquarium are educational and fun. Sertoma Park shares a parking lot and is a great picnic place with playgrounds.
