Trails make it easy for the casual walker to get up the dune and over to the beach. The sand is deep and it is not easy for a handicapped person to navigate. Also - there is a lot of poison ivy along the trails, so I'd suggest you stay on the path.

This is a great place to relax, enjoy the view, and even swim if you can believe that! The water is colder than most people like so I only swim there on the hottest of summer days but on those days it's perfect! The sand is super fine! Be careful not to get sucked out in a rip tide as... More

I was ecstatic to see the fine sand at this beach but the sand can be very hot during warm days. You can't walk barefoot on it unless your walking by the water. Lots of things to do outdoors here if you don't like sun bathing.

We never come to Duluth and not make a stop at Park Point! So peaceful here. Great place to just bring a blanket and a good book and watch the waves come in or go for a walk along the Beach in the sand. It's my Happy Place!!!!

It was 100% worth the drive to the end of the road to see this park. We had a wonderful cold, windy day, and had the place to ourselves. You can really feel the power of the lake.

Considering most of the shoreline I have seen along the North Shore of Lake Superior is rocky, it was a surprise to see the sandy beach at park point park beach. There are natural sand dunes with a walking bridge to cross them to get to the shore. Once you cross the bride you will see the beautiful beach

Staying in Canal Park area -- nice drive to the end of the road. Winter effects on the beach impressive: ice cliffs with windy waves crashing through and spray spouting between. Checked out airport "lounge" as well -- interesting photos and historical air articles.

Even though Park Point is a beach, the winter views were just as pretty. You can see a full view of Duluth. I found the most amazing ice dams on the lake where waves came crashing up to make cliffs. Very pretty view and pleasantly surprised with how soft the sand was.

Seeing the ice heaves and frozen formations is astounding! You walk over the sand dunes and quickly come upon beautiful blue ice - it's quite a sight to see.

Canal Park is wonderful, but, take some time to visit Park Point. The Point is but a short way from the city scene, with natural shoreline and beautiful inland sea vistas. Let your stress blow away with the lake breeze!
