Interesting building

Interesting building with cool views. The building is a little cramped and can be difficult to navigate up the stairs and back down on a busy day.

I've always loved this park! An incredible view no matter the time of year! The gates are closed off in the winter but it's not a hard walk up! So worth it!

I've been here many times. They have a cool audio tour you can download to your phone which is fun. Go in the summer for the gardens - go anytime for the view

We have gone here in the fall, which is amazing. Great views. We went at night during late November to try and see the skyline and Bentleyville lights. You cannot drive into the park, but park in the entrance and walk into park. It is not plowed or shoveled, so be aware of safety.

I visited Enger Park and Tower while on a bike-packing trip this summer. What a gem! The gardens are artfully maintained, the walking paths take you into other hidden gardens and the tower offers beautiful views of Duluth and Lake Superior. There are quiet areas for meditation or a picnic lunch. I wish I would have known about this place... More

There were quite a few people but they have a gate stopping you from entering the parking lot and gates closing the tower too. I guess there's not much point in a visit off-season.

This is a really nice little park minutes away from downtown duluth. The overlook as well as the tower offer beautiful views of Duluth, Superior and points beyond. There is a nice Japanese garden that provides a short stroll. This would be a nice spot for a sandwich with a view. You can spend 30-60 minutes here depending onI what... More

Be sure when you are in Duluth to take the time to visit in Enger tower and Park. Gardens and area around the tower are beautiful and tranquil. Climbing the tower is a good workout for young and old. It's worth the view from the top to see all of the Duluth harbor and out into The lake of Superior!... More

The tower itself was closed, so I didn't get a chance to climb up, but the views of the city from the park itself are amazing. Worth it for those views alone.
