Sit back, relax, and enjoy views of the lake, or walk among a collection of modern sculptures at City Park and Embankment. Look for the statue of the fishermen, a gift from the city of Duluth, Minnesota and the first modern sculpture in the park that started the tradition of exchanging sculptures with sister-cities. The park is perfect for open-air activities and features some exercise machines you can use for free. Use the free Wi-Fi available throughout and enjoy a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants. The park also hosts big city events and its pier is a starting point for a number of boat tours.
