As part of the Imagine Duluth 2035 process, the City has been collaborating with interested residents, the Canal Park Business Association, as well as many others, to consider the future of Canal Park – what we’re calling Imagine Canal Park. As a local, statewide, and regional destination, Canal Park has grown and changed over the past 30 years. The hope for the Imagine Canal Park process is to create a plan to build upon this great success, preserving what’s worked well, enhancing areas where we see low-hanging fruit, and addressing issues where we can do better.
Following recommendations in the project's interim report, the City hosted the inaugural Cold Front February Kick-off Celebration on February 1st-4th, 2018. This free, all ages pop-up event animated a parking lot in Canal Park with winter-themed outdoor activities, vendors, and live music. Read the most recent press release here.
