In July 19th, 2011, my mom, two daughters and I went to visit the Duluth Rose Garden in Duluth, MN. It was an absolutely beautiful day and the roses were gorgeous. We definitely need to go back again this summer! And several times each year would be even better so we can see the various changes throughout the spring and summer (like how on this visit we were too late for the peony garden). On this page are some of my favorite pictures from the day. Make sure to click on the pictures to see the full size. My only regret is that I didn’t keep better track of the names of the roses but guess that’s just another excuse to go back!
The Duluth Rose Garden (an extension of Lief Erikson Park) is on the shore of Lake Superior on London Road in Duluth. It’s a wonderful park with many different flowers. Over 3,000 rose bushes but also other perennials including a huge selection of peonies. There are many benches to take a break on and view the flowers and view Lake Superior. There are also walking trails that lead down to the Duluth Lakewalk for an even closer view of the lake. My girls enjoyed climbing on the rocks and getting their feet wet on this summer day.
Later that day, we visited Enger Tower & Gardens in Duluth. Another great place to visit!
