Duluth Mayor Don Ness and other community officials celebrated the opening of the city's newest park with a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday morning near the Lakewalk.
The park is above a new wastewater overflow holding tank near Lake Superior between downtown and Canal Park. And now that the park is open, the city wants your help giving it a name.
According to a news release, "the park contains artistic representations of the four Duluth Sister Cities and structure designs, Minnesota native foliage, a new public restroom, benches and one of the most spectacular views of Lake Superior."
To submit a name for the park, you can visit the city's Parks and Recreation Facebook page, or go to the City of Duluth's website. A community advisory committee will review all the suggested names and submit the top three to the city council for approval.
The deadline to submit a name for the park is October 8.
