Park Description

Enger Park rests above Duluth’s West End on a site once called Grand Mountain. The park and adjacent golf course were developed on land purchased with money donated by West End furniture dealer Bert Enger in 1921. His 1931 will included more money for the park’s development, and in 1939 Enger Tower was built in the park in his honor. Today the park includes the American-Japanese Peace Bell, a gift from Duluth’s sister city of Ohara-Isumi, and serves as a popular location for weddings.

Permanent restrooms are open in the summer for seasonal use.

*The entry gate to Enger Park as well as the doors to the tower are closed every fall when the snow arrives. They are opened on May 1 annually and may be opened earlier depending upon weather conditions.
