Canal Park To Receive Fun, Temporary Makeover in September
From September 4 - September 17, Imagine Canal Park will turn the Lighthouse Parking Lot, located at 504 Canal Park Drive, into an interactive and fun “pop up” community park space.
According to the City of Duluth, installations in the Lighthouse Lot will include:
- inviting seating
- a sports area
- sand box
- other activities that are free and accessible to the public.
There will also be a temporary pedestrian plaza created for the month of September on Buchanan Street that will incorporate additional seating options, host weekly farmer’s market vendors as well as other events.
This Imagine Canal Park project will also allow motorists traveling towards the Aerial Lift Bridge on Lake Avenue South to turn left at Morse Street and reconnect to Canal Park Drive.
Imagine Canal Park was born out of the Imagine Duluth 2035 process. The city
won a Knight Cities Challenge grant of over $200,000 to implement the project, which will end in December, 2018. They expect to launch similar "pop up" projects this fall.
