It's the perfect stop on a summer evening. The Leif Erickson Park and Rose Garden is a wonderful, colorful stop along the big lake. Walk the paved trail or saunter across the lawn between islands of flowers. The gardens were filled with shades of purple on our recent visit in late June. The wild roses were blooming, and there was... More

The war memorials, sculptures plants, and spectacular view makes this very worthwhile. There are also interesting murals a short walk away

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?
