5 stories, worth the view. Plus beautiful gardens for a little stroll. If you wander a little, there is a pergola area that is used for weddings. What a view!!

Very peaceful location overlooking all of Duluth. Japanese garden was in bloom and there's a huge bell which gives the park a spiritual vibe. Didn't climb the tower but I'm sure the views would be even better.

Park in the lot and walk a short distance to the tower, well worth the effort. Nice climb up and once there you can look out over the Twin Ports. A must visit when the tree colors are changing in the fall, the views are...More

Walk all steps to the top of the tower and enjoy a great scenery over Duluth area. Take the opportunity to walk in the patk after the visit in the tower.

Nice place to visit. See and climb the tower, walk the park and check out the overlook of the lake and city up on the hill. A extra plus if the ice cream truck is onsite.

Yes, in most of Duluth's lovely parks, people may bring their dogs, but they must be on leashes and you must pick up after them. Many parks have dispensers with plastic bags for dog poo. Use common sense while taking your... More
