Park Description: Originally Called Cullum Park and then Lake Shore Park, this greenspace located along Lake Superior near the mouth of Chester Creek became Leif Erikson Park in 1927 after Bert Enger purchased the replica vessel Leif Erikson, which sailed from Norway to Duluth, and donated it to the city on the condition it be placed in the park and the park renamed in its honor. The park has long been home to Duluth’s Rose Garden and includes a historic amphitheater stage and the Lakewalk slices through it. The Leif Erikson vessel, however, sits in storage near Bayfront Park. Click here to read a complete history of this park.
