Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

We spent two half days here, and there were still some things we would have liked to see. Most things were within walking distance of our hotel.

We had a lovely walk through this park. It had POURED rain earlier in the day, complete with thunder, but it was worth the wait. The flowers were lovely. It was a wonderful hour stroll. Family friendly, although children ages 5-18 might not be thrilled...More

We enjoyed our day down at canal park! Lots to see nice views, bikes you can rent 2-4 passenger bikes would have been fun to rent! Lots of shopping down around canal park too! Was fun to check it out!!

I always need to stop at canal park in Duluth even if just passing through. I love watching the big ships entering and leaving the harbor. The lift bridge is iconic. I highly recommend walking out to the lighthouses and having lunch at Amazing Grace.

We were in town for a few days and made it down to canal park on a nice day. Unfortunately, if the weather is not good this spot is kind of a no go. Everything to really see is outdoors. They had many cute shops...More

I don't believe that Tall Ships Duluth is an event held every year, it seems that it is every 2-3 years on the Great Lakes. Duluth was 2013, and 2016.

As GoldenMom said, the Neptune statue is no longer there, but there are many statues on canal park. Most are located right along Canal Park Drive. One is the Fountain of the Wind, on the corner of Canal Park Drive and... More
