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

We stopped by well after peak rose season but enjoyed strolling the grounds and looking out over Lake Superior. Just a very pleasant place. Must be fabulous throughout the summer. The city and the rose club deserve thanks for maintaining the park.

I found this garden while I was looking for a free place to park so I could run by Lake Superior. It is hidden along the shoreline overlooking the lake and railroad tracks. The views are great for a picnic, it has a public rest room, an amazing granite fountain was moved here as well as another structure that I've... More

This was a great park with a great variety of roses still in bloom the last week end in September. Seriously take the time to stop and smell these roses!

This is really worth a stop. There are beautiful roses of many varieties and the view of Lake Superior is wonderful. It's a great start to a drive up the Northshore. Our out of state relatives enjoyed it!

We didn't expect to see so many blooms visiting at the end of September. There was a wonderful variety of roses, in so many different colors, and the site overlooking Lake Superior was beautiful on an early fall day!

What can anyone possible say about Leif Erickson Park and the Rose Garden? If you are visiting our delightful city, go there and walk around and spend an afternoon and be free. If you are from our beautiful city, go there and walk around and spend more time there than the last time. THIS is the place. You know what... More
