“Beautiful area in East Duluth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Roses, Leif Erickson replica viking boat, and the sparkling waters of Lake Superior as a background, make this a terrific place for any function, or just taking pictures. Best part, free admission!

“A gem of a garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I wish the gardeners of the Rose Garden would come to my house! It was so fun to browse through the many roses and take time to stop and smell them! Overlooking Lake Superior is such a great view and this is a great stop in the Duluth itinerary. I was disappointed that the Viking ship was covered with a tarp, but it looks like they are trying to raise money to build a structure over the ship to protect it. The statue of Leif Erikson is pretty cool, though.

“Beautiful location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

When the roses are all in bloom, this is an enchanting place to visit. Not only are there the hundreds of roses to look at, smell, and enjoy, but the Rose Garden overlooks Lake Superior which adds to the charm.

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

We all had so much fun here. The walking trails are beautiful! There could have been better trails leading down to the rocks along the lake though. But we were up for the challange! And the kids thought it was cool that we were walking on top of a highway and didn't even know it! (We did not tell them until after we were there.) And then we drove on I 35 and went under the park. They thought that was pretty neat.
