I climbed to the top carrying a 2 year old but would quickly do it again for the view of the harbor.

The grounds around the park are very inviting with beautiful flowers and shrubs. The view at the top is very good. We got good shots of the area. As we were descending we heard the haunting sound of a didgeridoo. Someone was playing it inside the tower and it was echoing throughout. It was really cool! The guy said that... More

Due to the recent flooding that Duluth had about a month ago, you cannot traverse the entire drive due to the road conditions. You can easily access the tower though, once you walk to the top, the view of the harbor and Duluth is well worth the short drive. Signage though is a little lacking and you have to pay... More

This is pretty hard to get to. But worth every turn of the road. Area overlooks the Duluth area and Lake Superior's south west side. Can walk right to the edge of the cliffs for stunning pictures. Walk through a Japanese garden. Ad up into the tower to see even more sights over Duluth.

Easy to see the tower but not so obvious to get there. Nice tower with gardens and a spectacular view. Not a must see if limited on time but a neat place to see and a great view of the harbor and city.

Last week, we took a mini-vacation to Duluth. It was a beautiful, clear day when we arrived, and we decided to check the view from Enger Park which is located at the top of the hill overlooking the harbor. When we lived in the city thirty years ago, this was a trashy park that we avoided with our young children.... More

Hadn't been there in several years, but after hearing that it's been upgraded we had to check it out. It's wonderful! The view is still spectacular, but it now seems to be more user-friendly than in the old days. Nice and clean, and the grounds are fantastic.

The tower has beautiful gardens and a great view of the city. I hadn't visited for over 30 years, and I was very impressed by the changes. The tower has beautiful flowers gardens in the nearby park area.

You get an absolutely wonderful view of the city from the top of Enger Tower including the lift bridge and the harbor. The gardens are also very pretty to walk around in. Worth the trip up to the top!
