Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

Always a highlight of any trip to Duluth

Traffic can get crazy with the one lane road in and one lane road out. Parking can also get really backed up. Always worth spending time in Canal park.

We had the opportunity to watch large ships go through Friday night and Saturday night. It is amazing to watch. It is also awesome to see the lift bridge lit up at night. Feeding the seagulls is also a highlight for my family each time we visit.

From the shoppes for souvenirs to grabbing a bite to eat there is something here for everyone. We spent all day just checking out the area and taking a boat cruise in the afternoon. So much to see and do you could spend a couple of days.

It's a beautiful park with lots to check out and a great place for the kiddos to watch the gigantic ships to come in. Super fun for everyone involved. AND it's FREE!

I never tire of walking around this area with the beautiful shoreline, beach area, the famous bridge, the shops and restaurants. There is something for everyone including bike rentals. Great to stroll after a day's drive over after a meal at Grandma's nearby!

Love spending the evenings on the canal. It's great to see the traffic on the lake and venture around the park.

If you don't mind expensive food, expensive trinkets and hoards of people then Canal Park is for you. If you want relaxation, stay away. Living in the area, I stay away unless on the motorcycle and just passing thru, or to people watch. The restaurants are over prices, and not a one there is "all that" for food.

The Canal Park area is a great destination for walking or biking. There are many shops, hotels and restaurants to choose from. It is not so large that you can't walk it and see all the beautiful scenery or attractions Ina couple of hours.
