Made the little hike up to the tower, but the actual tower is closed in the winter. A sign would have been helpful saying it was closed. It was still a great view of the city and even better at their large gazebo on the...More

This is very close to my house but I never get tired of walking here to enjoy nature and also the sister city pavilions. This is a gorgeous natural area with a view of Lake Superior that is unsurpassed.

This is another free attraction you can reach via the Skyline parkway above Duluth. The tower itself was pretty boring to me although I saw some people taking bridal pictures outside. On the way to the tower there was a Japanese garden with a peace...More

A free and nice area place to visit. Climb the tower for a sweeping view of Duluth. The gardens are well kept by local garden clubs. Nice hikes are available from here.

Neat place to visit. The views of the harbor and lake are great! I went to the top of the tower and loved it! The rest of the park is lovely too with a Japanese garden and more lookout spots.

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
