Leif Erickson Park & Rose Garden

Downtown Duluth has a wonderful park right along the shoreline of Lake Superior off London Road. It is called Leif Erickson Park. We learned about it the day we took our boat cruise of the Duluth Harbor (see a previous blog posted on Aug. 28th, after the blog about Glenscheen posted on Sept. 3rd).

A spectacular extension of the park is Duluth’s Rose Garden. It offers over 3,000 rose bushes along with other floral delights such as a fountain, marble gazebo, an herb garden, and plenty of benches on which to sit while overlooking the beautiful blue waters of Lake Superior.

We had a beautiful, sunny day this past week, so we decided to go to this park. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

I think we were at the “end” of the rose growing/blooming season, but the roses were still lovely and smelled SO good. My Grandma Zimmer (my mom’s mom) would have REALLY enjoyed the Rose Garden, especially the red roses.

So, for now ….. “On the Road Again!”
