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.

It's a great spot for taking pictures, checking out the bridge and seeing some nautical related exhibits.

“nice views”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

this locations is great for watching the ships. This is also where to go to watch the Duluth lift bridge. There are also lots of sea galls to feed of you want. The lake walk goes along the lake for a great view of Duluth.

“Always fun”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Our trips to Canal Park are never exactly the same. There are so many choices for eating and all the different shops, there are many to choose from. Walking around the park with a Grandmas ice cream cone, looking for cool rocks on the shore and waiting for 1000ft ships to come in is always fun.

“Favorite place to window shop!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Canal Park is beautiful in the summer, and it is a wonderful experience to check out all the shops when the sun is shining. You will not be disappointed by the uniqueness of the old buildings, and the craftsmanship of the products sold. I usually leave with a smile and too many bags.

“Worthy of a day trip or a long weekend.”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Spring to Fall this is a great place to be. Winter weekends are more fun than one would think, as the Lake takes on a whole different feeling. Shops are not as busy in Winter. Wander around the shops and look at Lake Superior. Ore Ships will pass by for additional entertainment. Most concerts in the Duluth area are held at the DECC in Canal Park, so you may catch a show or a NCAA Hockey game.
