Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -- For 72 years Enger Tower has stood watch over the city of Duluth. Soon the tower will look down on a new gazebo and accessible trails.

If you've been to Duluth's Enger Park lately you've probably noticed the tower's new look.

And now the park's grounds are getting some sprucing up as well.
Volunteers like Kelly Bates have been busy this week making way for the new trails by clearing out brush, rocks and stumps.

"I was originally supposed to get a job this summer but it's so difficult so I thought I'd just, might as well work volunteer and help fix up, clean up, the Enger Tower."

The trail work will grant access to what will be a significantly larger gazebo allowing for bigger events.

Volunteers are still needed to help clear the trails over the several days.

City staff will be on hand to direct volunteers and answer questions.

Scheduled times for volunteers to help build the new accessible trail are:

Monday, August 15, 8:30-2:30 pm
Tuesday, August 16, 8:30-2:30 pm
Wednesday, August 17, 8:30-2:30 pm and from 5:00-8:00 pm
Thursday, August 18, 8:30-2:30 pm
Friday, August 19, 8:30-2:30 pm
Sunday, August 21, 2:00-5:00 pm
