Beautiful park and rose garden in the summer. A great escape to just take time walking and relaxing. Bring a picnic as it is the perfect picnic spot.

I like the Leif Erickson statue. I'm guessing this park is much better on a day when it isn't drizzling and cold.

We just came across this park when driving by and decided to stop. It was well worth the time to explore. The rose garden was beautiful as well as the rest of the park.

The Leif Erickson Park and Rose Garden is a meticulously maintained public flower (rose) garden perched over Lake Superior. It's definitely work a visit (or many visits).

This is a very large and well maintained rose garden. There were a lot of roses in bloom and a lot of variety. The garden overlooks the Lakewalk with a nice view of Lake Superior and the Aerial Bridge.

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.
