Attraction details
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.

“A can't miss when you are in Duluth”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

They have really made this area so much nicer over the last 40 years and it is the place to be when you visit. So many newer hotels and eateries so this has become the magnet for tourists and locals. Will be back next weekend as well as in the future.

Wonderful place to watch large ships traverse the canal. Recommend renting bikes from the canal vender and ride along the lake

“Fun Day”

We had the pleasure of listening to the a Tom Petty tribute band while the kids played at the playground. The whole park was very clean and had a lot to look at.

“Why would you not stop here?”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is the best thing to do in Duluth! The only thing you have to pay for is parking. You can watch the huge ships carrying thousands of pounds of iron ore go under the lift bridge, there is a free museum to explore, and you can enjoy the beautiful Lake Superior shore. This is Duluth!

“Center of Activity”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Always a ton of stuff going on at Canal Park - the Maritime Museum is really cool, and the kids love skipping rocks into Lake Superior. A plethora of shops and restaurants make this attraction fun for everybody.
