The lake walk connects to this and you can get to it very easily or if you begin at the rose garden you can get to the lake walk very easily and down to canal park or to the Portland Malt shoppe.

I have only visited in the summer or Fall, before first frost, so I have only seen this park at it's peak. It is very pretty, with amazing views of the Lake. Clean restrooms. Wedding party pictures being taken. Children in strollers, delightful breezes. Nice park.

Even in September, when the weather was cooler and breezy, the gardens were mostly in full bloom, and the sunny day provided spectacular views of the lake and surrounding area. Not terribly busy, able to walk freely and enjoy the experience. I think it's a favorite of tourists and locals alike.

The city of Duluth knocks itself out with this fine rose garden. If you love roses this is a must visit attraction. There are roses of every variety and color from standard old time favorites to new and beautiful hybrids. The layout of the garden looking out to Duluth Harbor on Lake Superior is very appealing as well.

It was cool, for like the 1st 10 minutes... my kids were impatient, and it was a waste of our time... Maybe a VERY interested gardener would enjoy it, but my daughter and i thought it was a waste.

I love this place! Great views of the lake, and a nice variety of roses. Many weddings are held here, but you need to book at least 2 years in advance.

There are some neat views here, but there are some other areas with more breathtaking views. We did enjoy the natural beauty of the place. There was a bit of architecture to look at but perhaps its a better place to visit when the roses are in full bloom. Later in the year it was nothing special.

Even though it was the second week of October, the roses were still beautiful. All the colors of the rainbow were present in the different varities of roses. My wife simply enjoyed these gardens.

You can spend a long time admiring the beautiful garden, the lake / city view and it is also a great place to walk around and enjoy some peace and quiet. Has access to a little beach by Lake Superior that is just gorgeous.
