“Breathtaking Views of Duluth and Superior”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

if you want to get the picture, it`s worth the trip. This is good for families, the kids can climb though rocks to get to the tower or take the paved path to it where you can get a 360 view of what is going on in Duluth shore and high bridge. It was fun seeing a ship depart and go under the elevated high bridge-you can get a schedule of what ships are coming and going on the local newspaper, I'm sure there is an app for that too.
They have a Zen Japanese garden and other structures that you will enjoy.
Presently they are repairing the bathrooms so they have port-a potties... which it was the only temporary downside for me. I should have gone before the trip.
Allow 1 hour.

“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!
