This city park is a local gem. Popular with residents and visitors, you can enter the Lakewalk for walking, running or biking. In the summer/fall it's ablaze with roses and various flowers for stunning photography.

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

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).
