Duluth, Minnesota

Collaborative Design Group was retained by the City of Duluth to develop a comprehensive master plan for the City’s iconic Enger Park. Included in the planning was a full restoration of the famous stone observation tower, renovations and renewal of the park’s iconic shelter, new and restored hiking trails, a wellness path, and new support buildings and parking areas.

CDG designed the restoration of the historic pavilion building, as well as the iconic Enger Tower, which included the installation of a dynamic new lighting program. This LED-based system allows programmable, color-changing lighting of both the interior and exterior of the structure and enhances the Tower’s traditional role as a beacon on the skyline of the City. CDG also designed a gazebo that overlooks the lift bridge and the City of Duluth. Constructed of heavy timber and stone, the design is reminiscent of the Park’s Tower.
