Collaborative Design Group was retained by Duluth, MN to develop a comprehensive Master Plan for the City’s iconic Enger Park. Included was a full restoration of the famous stone observation structure, renovations and renewal of the park’s iconic shelter and cliff-top gazebo, new and restored hiking trails, a wellness path, and new support buildings and parking areas.
Part of the project is a dynamic new lighting program for the Tower (funded by a generous Centennial grant from Rotary International). This LED-based system allows programmable, colorchanging 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 Zenith City.
CDG also designed a gazebo, which overlooks the beautiful lift bridge and the city of Duluth. Constructed of heavy timber and stone the design is reminiscent of the iconic Enger Tower. This is the first in a series of buildings being designed to energize and activate the Park for generations to come. Future projects include renovation of the historic pavilion and a new guard station.
