This was well worth the stroll. So many different color's and varieties. While taking in the beauty of the flowers you also get a wonderful view of the lake. It was also a pleasant surprise to have rest rooms in good condition located at the edge of the garden.

The roses were quite beautiful as were the views of the bay. The garden provides parking, is near downtown and restaurants and is certainly worth a stroll.

This garden is very beautiful. The roses are lovely. It overlooks Lake Superior and the view is wonderful. Good place for a walk along the path and through the garden. Bring your camera for some nice pictures.

It's been years since we walked this park. Though the Viking ship is gone (or at least we didn't see it) the rest of the walk was beautiful. The mountain ash were in full bloom and the other trees were turning colors. Two ships were anchored in the bay and an ore boat came by from up the coast. Got... More

We thought we'd probably see more of what we missed by stopping in a little late in the season than what we actually saw - the beautiful and serene gardens were meticulously cared for. Groomed perfectly. What we'd planned on being a quick look/see turned into a relaxing hour and a half of slow walks through the blooming roses and... More

The Rose Gardens in Duluth are beautiful. This is a place you want to visit in the summer when the Roses and Peonies are in full swing. The smell of fresh flowers is very inviting. The gardens are beautifully designed symbolic of noble gardens of estates. I have uploaded a couple photos to give you an idea of this place.... More

This rose garden is gorgeous! Worth a trip to Duluth for these roses alone. Lovely walk on the lake walk to get there.

Part of the Park's charm is the Lakewalk to get there. It has some stunning views back to Duluth and The Aerial Bridge. The garden is on a hill above the shoreline to Lake Superior. It was a nice place for photo ops and relaxation.

We were there on a rare 80 degree day in Duluth and walked through these beautiful gardens. The rose gardens are at least two blocks long and have a view of the lake and bridge. Highly recommend!
