Owner description: Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

Lucky to be here on a sunny day. Enjoyed watching bridge go up and boats passing. Had icecream. If more time would have hired bikes available.

“No parking”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We tried to visit, but the main parking area was closed. Traffic was very heavy. After driving around looking for a parking space, we left.

“Really Nice Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Nice area to walk and shop. Try to get a hotel in the area to fully enjoy. It is a nice area to go for a walk along the water. Take some bread along and feed the birds!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Our hotel was right on Canal Park so we utilized it often. We brought bread to feed the birds...the kids LOVED that. We climbed on the rocks, walked the pier to the light house, walked underneath the Ariel Lift Bridge, etc. The Maritime Museum is great...lots of info to take in or not. Several little movies, lots to read, tons of models, tributes to sunken ships, etc. We visited twice in fact, because my kids (8 & 6) wanted to go back...but we're kind of nerdy that way. :-) Canal Park is just a nice place to hang out, waiting to see a ship.
