I have been going to Duluth for years and years and always saw this up on the hill and wondered how on earth to get to it. I followed someone up, and wow, what a view. Not crowded, lovely gardens, a bell for the kids to ring. Fun little diversion in Duluth.

Great spot for picnics as well. The climb up the tower is not that difficult even for a person like me who is afraid of heights. There are many varieties of flowers along maintained paths. Beautiful rock outcroppings. Benches to sit and enjoy areas. And of course the Peace Bell from the sister city of Ohara Japan. A lovely spot... More

Visiting Enger Park for the first time and very pleased. Great views of Duluth and not that many stairs. Just a nice calm place to enjoy the sights of the harbor, downtown, and Lake Superior.

We have been to Duluth several times and have never stopped here. We sure were missing out on a beautiful view of Duluth from Enger Tower. The Japanese gardens around the park were amazing.

This place is only for the young at heart. There is a tremendous amount of stairs, and it gets very windy by the time you climb to the top even on a hot day, bring a jacket.

Great history, breathtaking views of the area. Well maintained grounds, lots of shaded areas, room for picnics and space for kids to play. Climb the tower, see the harbour. Don't forget to find the huge bell and give it a ring!

We stopped here for the restroom, scenery and water fountain. We refilled out bike bottles and took a 15 minute break before heading back out to explore the Duluth roads and intersections on our bikes!

This is my favorite park in Duluth. Great place to hang out or walk around, lots of trails that my dog loves, and the gardens are gorgeous and immaculately maintained. Beautiful location for a wedding.

A beautiful view of our magnificent city! Take a hike on one of the many trails, climb the stairs to the top of the Enger Tower (watch for pigeon poo) and take in the expansive view, walk through the gardens and don't forget to bang the "gong" - some say you should make a wish! Walk over to the overlook,... More
