our GPS for some reason detoured us off of 61 and through town, and when we drove over the bridge and saw the creek, we had to cut a quick turn around and come back. Spent a couple hours exploring. Great little not-so-crowded area that would be perfect for a lot of different uses, or just walking around taking pictures.

I live very close to this park and almost bike to it everyday! This park has a Nordic/snowmobile trail in the winter and can be used as a biking/walking trail in the summer! Also in the summer theirs cliff-jumping! Its not the safest place to go for height. This place is a must see if your in Duluth! Come visit!

We spent several hours there this morning with our three girls - ages 6,4, and 3. There were lots of things to do there to keep us all occupied. We spent some time on the playground, went for a walk/hike on some of the trails, enjoyed a picnic in a secluded spot on one of the trails (but still had... More

I'm fortunate to live close to Lester Park and go hiking here all the time. You can hike, bike, swim, play on the playground, picnic, grill, have a large sports game (soccer, football, frisbee, baseball -even volleyball or badmitten if you bring your own net). There are great mountain biking trails, walking trails, hiking trails, snow mobile trails, snow shoeing... More

If you live on the East side of Duluth, this is your park. But few visitors seem to know about it. Hiking, biking and ski trails line both sides of a dramatic river gorge. CHEAT: You can drive the Seven Bridges Road instead of hiking the steep trails. GOLF: Lester Park Golf Course is a very good public course, with... More

This is a nice little park and worth a stop. Take some time to relax and enjoy the hiking along the creeks. The kids will thank you for the stop.

Lester Park has so much to offer and then some. Between flowing water falls, hiking trails, huge vast open land, and a park for children; it is the half day outdoor adventure seekers paradise. You will not be disappointed.

You are surrounded by nature's beauty. There is so much to do in Lester Park. I enjoy just going and watching the waterfalls and the river, and walking along the trails. I can't get enough!

It's just a small park with a walking trail . You can swim in the creeks and that can be fun climbing the rocks and jumping . In the fall they have fall fest there .. It's a nice free thing for the family. Free train ride also. There is a small play ground for kids and grills to cook... More
