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.

“Relaxing walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

Canal Park is what makes us want to return to Duluth. Whether you want to just take a long, slow walk along the beach or pier, browse local art, or dine at a great restaurant, this place has a little piece of everything. It's a real treat if you're able to time your visit with the arrival of one of the big Lake Superior boats coming into the harbor. The parking is the only downside to the area. The cost isn't the factor, rather, the lack of ease of quickly getting in and out of any designated areas. Unfortunately, a lot of the businesses seemed to gobble up lots and you have to either be a paying patron of a hotel or restaurant to get 'free' parking. Overall, Canal Park is still quintessential 'Duluth' to us. Will return again in the future hopefully.
