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

We spent 3 1/2 hours hiking trails in Lester Park ... favorite area was along the Lester River with overlooks along the river. Many cross country ski trails as well...wide, easy to navigate areas (except for some that were extremely muddy and required walking along the edge!). The leaves were amazing ... beautiful yellows and reds/oranges framed against a bright... More

Walked along the river with bubbling brooks and enjoyed the nature. There are places you can go down and put your feet in the water and just enjoy being among the rocks.
