Roses are amazing. There are other perennials also, wonderful stroll through the park. Attached to the Lakewalk, beautiful view. Great place for picture taking. Many prom groups, wedding groups etc. go there to take their pictures.

Beautiful Park and walk through. Roses were awesome and we missed seeing the Viking ship. We somehow got off track for that.

Many hours of time and effort into creating this park. Its very relaxing. Although I got rained on. Totally worth it. Congrats to the city of Duluth. Other Cities take notes!
