Most people find this place by accident. It's a very luscious garden and has many a pretty flower in it. There is a fantastic view of the Harbor from the top tier Garden. I would suggest this as a place for a romantic walk, a marriage proposal or even a wedding. haha. If nothing else, it's a fantastic place to... More

Flowers are amazing and the lake views are beautiful. Roses predominate but there are peonies and azaleas in the Spring as well as a variety of perrennials.

This park was very grand in its day. It has an old conservation core type amphitheater. very nice landscaping and some revenants of the 20's and 30's if you look around. There is nice paths right down to lake superior and of course, the leaf Erickson ship. My family and I have visited this expansive park many times and we... More

I went here on a whim on a chilly, breezy autumn day. The rose collection - a major treasure, it appears - was being put to bed for the winter. But the trees were still pretty, and the Lake was still...the Lake. Great place to stroll quietly around, or relax on a bench or in the gazebo and just Be.

One of the highlights of Duluth. I walk here at least once a week in the summer and fall. The flowers are meticulously maintained and breathtakingly beautiful. It is a place of peace and inspiration and... it gives hope to those of us that it is possible to have rose bushes in the frozen tundra.

It's a park with flowers . Nice to walk around and look at the lake . The rose garden is nice to walk around . Benches there to sit and look at the lake.

We came upon this park by accident as we ventured along the lakewalk. Immaculate. We may have looked a little foolish taking pictures of roses, but that's what tourists do, right?

Who would have imagined a romantic rose garden rising above the shores of Lake Superior? Someone did, and kudos to them for this beautiful garden full of hardy, short-lived roses planted in beautiful gardens with fountains, a stunning gazebo, and the endless blue-grey of the lake stretching out as far as the eye can see. Charming old trains run from... More

On a beautiful fall day, there is nothing prettier than roses in full bloom, against a fall blue sky with the beauty of Lake Superior in the background. A MUST visit!

Take time to walk through the Rose Garden and the Leif Erikson park. Pull out a blanket and have a picnic in the grassy park bowl area and enjoy the stunning views of the lake. If in the park on a Saturday in the summer, you'll likely be able to see a new wedding happening on the hour every hour... More
