“As far as Towers go....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

This is an impressive tower in a beautiful park setting. The gardens of flowers were well kept and full of colorful blooms.
The tower it self is a walk up to incredible views of Duluth. We enjoy this little free side venture.

“Definitely worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The steep hills behind downtown Duluth make for dramatic views of the city and Lake Superior if one can get above the trees. This old-fashioned tower makes that possible. Especially fine place to visit near sunset. Don't hesitate to climb the stairs; there aren't many and the view improves 100% at the top.

“Great view from the Tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The park is a fun place to walk around. I especially liked the Tower (NOTE: This is not the place for those who are afraid of heights - it is VERY tall. Also note there is no wheelchair access and the stairs to the top are in a narrow passageway.) The view from the top of Duluth and Lake Superior is beautiful. The oriental garden portion is lovely. The huge oriental gong was fun to hit. This is not a park with a lot of things to do but is quiet and nice. A good place to have a picnic.

“Beautiful gardens and views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Had a lot of fun walking through the gardens- gorgeous flowers! Going up to the top of the tower is so worth the many flights of stairs! The view is fantastic!

“It's a lovely park.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I've never seen this park in the summer, but I imagine it's beautiful. The views are spectacular. The tower is worth the climb if you can do the steps. There is a hiking trail, also, that is a nice walk. I would highly recommend stopping here during a visit to Duluth.
