You love flowers? You enjoy landscape? Then in Duluth one of the many places you should not miss. Even walking on the grass is a delight.

The lake walk connects to this and you can get to it very easily or if you begin at the rose garden you can get to the lake walk very easily and down to canal park or to the Portland Malt shoppe.

It was cool, for like the 1st 10 minutes... my kids were impatient, and it was a waste of our time... Maybe a VERY interested gardener would enjoy it, but my daughter and i thought it was a waste.

I love this place! Great views of the lake, and a nice variety of roses. Many weddings are held here, but you need to book at least 2 years in advance.

There are some neat views here, but there are some other areas with more breathtaking views. We did enjoy the natural beauty of the place. There was a bit of architecture to look at but perhaps its a better place to visit when the roses...More

It's a park it's open all the time, there is no gate to get in. Although I think they discourage visitors past 10pm.

How is the parking availability here? We're visiting several places in Duluth this week and the park is central to it all. Would be nice to park here, enjoy the park whilst picnicking and then branch out, and not have to drive all over trying to find a space!

There is a parking lot but it is not huge, I was there early in the morning do were plenty of spaces but can see this lot getting full quickly so my advice is to get there early!
