Owner description: Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

“fun time for adults and kids”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

Canal Park on the shores of Lake Superior in Duluth, mn is a mecca of shopping, resturants, hotels and great views of the lake. Rock climbing was the big attraction for the kids as well as watching the big ships come into the harbor. If you go get a room facing the lake with a balcony.... like being on the ocean. We will be going every summer from now on.

“Great every time!”
Reviewed June 29, 2011

This is a stop we make every time we are in Duluth. Very fun and relaxing and a bonus if a ship goes through. So much to see and do down here from sights to food and drink.

“fablous!”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

A great place to visit with the family. We played on the board walk for hours, filled the lake with rocks, ate ice cream, watch the bridge go up and down. Toured the Irving, and aquarium.

“Must see!”
Reviewed June 9, 2011

Wonderful place to visit, the maritime museum is a must. The lift bridge is really cool and is really a sight to see. If you can watch one of the ships come in, you're in for a huge treat!

Walking along the sea wall is also a must do, you'll get some awesome views of downtown Duluth.

There are also some really unique shops in the area and Grandma's is a great place for lunch or dinner.

“Amazing, Beautiful all times of the year!”
Reviewed October 7, 2010

I love Canal Park, not ALOT of things to do, but is the most wonderful place. Try to stay to watch a ship come in that needs the lift bridge lifted. Many places to eat, shop, and just relax.
