Duluth's Floral Crown: Leif Erikson Park & Rose Garden

Tucked away in Duluth, Minnesota, you’ll find a verdant oasis that offers more than just a break from city life — it’s a realm of breathtaking beauty, a testament to the city’s rich history, and a living, breathing work of art. This paradise is none other than the Leif Erikson Park & Rose Garden.

Situated along the scenic North Shore Drive, the Leif Erikson Park & Rose Garden is named in honor of the legendary Viking explorer, Leif Erikson. It was believed that he was the first European to set foot on North American soil, 500 years before Christopher Columbus. The park itself houses a stone replica of a Viking ship, donated by Duluth’s Norwegian sister city, highlighting Duluth’s cultural ties to Scandinavia.

However, while the historical significance of the park is noteworthy, it’s the Rose Garden that truly sets it apart. Spanning over six acres, the garden is a vibrant tapestry of colors, fragrances, and textures. It’s home to over 3,000 rose bushes and a multitude of other annuals and perennials that paint the landscape with their brilliant hues from spring through fall. The meticulously arranged beds of roses, in all their varied species and cultivars, provide a feast for the senses. From the delicate Peace roses with their soft petals and calming aroma to the bold, fiery hues of the Don Juan climbing roses, the garden is a haven for flower enthusiasts and casual visitors alike. Whether you’re an avid gardener seeking inspiration or a romantic soul looking for the perfect picnic spot, the Rose Garden offers a delightful retreat.

Besides the floral displays, the garden also features a marble gazebo, fountains, and arbors, enhancing its charm and making it a favored location for wedding ceremonies, photo shoots, and other special events. As you stroll through the garden, the beautiful vista of Lake Superior adds a serene backdrop to this botanical masterpiece.
