People who live in Duluth are sometimes snobbish about their city parks and trails. They think they’re the best in the Twin Ports. I know, I have been guilty of such civic offenses.
Well, I had my eyes opened when I attended a recent after-work picnic in Billings Park across the bridge and the state line from Duluth in Superior, Wisconsin. In all my years of living in the area, I had never been to this gem of a park. It’s gorgeous!
The park features several picnic areas, a playground, grills, a volleyball pit, and trails along the bay. I’ve been back the the park twice more to walk Buddy and to paddleboard. With a public water access and calm bays to explore, the park is great for human-powered watersports.
I urge fellow Duluthians to put aside their prejudices and explore Superior. Get out there and get your Blue Mind on!

You are right – it is gorgeous! We don’t have any around South Texas that look like that! People should be proud of it.
Yes, I think the locals are so proud of it that they are keeping it a secret from everyone else. Ha ha.
Well said. Superior keeps a lot of their parks up while Duluth is busy building/developing from green spaces when existing sites need help. Superior should be very proud. Example for the twin to follow. Love Billings!
Yes, the budget for Duluth Parks really took a hit in the past. I hope things can turn around in the future….
