Lake Superior Zoo Proposed Concepts

View and Comment

Duluth’s Parks and Recreation Division has invited the public to view and comment on three proposed concept plans for improvements to the Lake Superior Zoo and Fairmount Park. The plans were presented by a consultant at the Jan. 19 Duluth Parks Commission Open House.

The concepts envision a renewed zoo in a roughly 10-acre footprint and converts a portion of the existing zoo to become a free public park for the St. Louis River Corridor. The plan is estimated at $15 million and has $2.7 million of half-and-half funding already allotted to it.

The plans and an online survey are available at For a quick preview of the plans, click any image below to enlarge.
