The park is absolutely wonderful! It is a nice escape from the city. Being right off the lake walk, it is convenient to sit around or mosy about the park for a bit. There is a lot of history in the park and area (and also basically all of Duluth) so if you see a plaque, I suggest reading it... More

Took my wife here when visiting Duluth. Great garden, view of the Lift bridge and right in the city of Duluth. Not far from Fitzgers.

You love flowers? You enjoy landscape? Then in Duluth one of the many places you should not miss. Even walking on the grass is a delight.

The lake walk connects to this and you can get to it very easily or if you begin at the rose garden you can get to the lake walk very easily and down to canal park or to the Portland Malt shoppe.

I have only visited in the summer or Fall, before first frost, so I have only seen this park at it's peak. It is very pretty, with amazing views of the Lake. Clean restrooms. Wedding party pictures being taken. Children in strollers, delightful breezes. Nice park.

Even in September, when the weather was cooler and breezy, the gardens were mostly in full bloom, and the sunny day provided spectacular views of the lake and surrounding area. Not terribly busy, able to walk freely and enjoy the experience. I think it's a favorite of tourists and locals alike.

The city of Duluth knocks itself out with this fine rose garden. If you love roses this is a must visit attraction. There are roses of every variety and color from standard old time favorites to new and beautiful hybrids. The layout of the garden looking out to Duluth Harbor on Lake Superior is very appealing as well.

It was cool, for like the 1st 10 minutes... my kids were impatient, and it was a waste of our time... Maybe a VERY interested gardener would enjoy it, but my daughter and i thought it was a waste.
