“Lakeside Treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Lester Park is a fantastic park with many trails for hiking/walking with picturesque views of the Lester River. The playground equipment was destroyed in the 2012 flooding and is in the process of being replaced.

“What a great park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Discovered this park when we decided to do some geocaching. Excited to come back to walk the trails when we visit Duluth again. I didn't even know that gem was there.

“also a historic park, great for picnics!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

good tables nice grounds, tall swing if still have them, lots to see , easy paths, rail bridge for looking at. Sometimes the scenic railroad does a pickup there. I think it's huuuge river , esp. in spring, the tall banks and cliffs make it look smaller. Good for a family amble.

“One of my absolute favorite walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Whenever I am in Duluth, I make sure I have at least an hour to walk the forested trail up and down stream in Lester Park. The Seven Bridges are impressive and a milestone for our way we dealt with the depression of the 30's. The playground is not much nor are the toilet facilities, but I forgive that for the bucolic feel of the place.

“Great Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Lester Park has a beautiful cascading, lazy stream with pools shallow enough for families to safely escapte the summer heat and go for a swim. Families (children) can play for hours while parents relax on the shores. There are picnic grounds, playgrounds and many shaded hiking paths through the woods that are a beautiful escape. A great stop for families needing a relaxing, beautiful break when driving through, or staying on, the North Shore.
