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 local shopping and food places. Smoked fish, kitchen wares, clothing, outfitters, crafts. This is a fun walking destination in a pretty, clean area, with rose gardens and waterfront all within walking distance.

Like this park-- food vendors, the water, the waves, the Aerial Bridge, the shops, the boats. It has a lot to see and do along the way. Enjoyable stroll!

Loved walking around Canal Park and exploring the different shops. The lake with the backdrop makes it even better.

Canal Park is where you can get a great view of Lake Superior, visit the Aerial Lift Bridge and Maritime Museum, and get on the Lakewalk. There are a lot of interesting things to read about, as well as schedules for when the ore boats come in.

Took my family to see the view and watch boats come in under the lift bridge. We were lucky enough to catch a very small boat coming in but there wasn't much else to do in the area other than go through the museum.

We enjoy walking around the Canal Park area when visiting Duluth. We had a good time walking out along the pier, watching the bridge, and enjoyed the views.

Nice boardwalk, access to light houses, views of the Aerial Lift Bridge and benches to just sit and take it all in. Populated with restaurants and shops, but plenty of green space. Sometimes crowded, and traffic can be difficult, but worth the effort.
