This Saturday, May 19, has been declared Duluth Parks Day, and everyone is invited to get out and celebrate all that Duluth parks have to offer. 

According to the City, Duluth has 129 parks, 6800 acres of city parkland, 85 miles of multi-use trails and 12 miles of paved accessible trails.

This Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., you and your family can explore free organized activities, give away items and a light healthy picnic lunch at Lester Park, Bayfront Festival Park, or Morgan Park.

These events, which will occur rain or shine, are free to all ages and abilities and include:
