Parking / Getting to Bentleyville

Weekend parking at Bentleyville can be a test of patience for some. With other events often taking place at Amsoil Arena and in Canal Park on Fridays and Saturdays, we ask that guests plan to arrive early or plan to anticipate delays while parking on the weekends.

Handicap Parking
Handicap parking is available in the Bentleyville lots. Please have your handicap parking permit visible when entering the lot and parking staff will direct you to an appropriate parking spot.

Shuttles and Buses
Shuttles and buses need to drop off their passengers near the entrance to Great Lakes Aquarium. Please ensure all passengers are ready to board before returning to pick up the guests. Parking for buses and shuttles is available behind the DECC on Harbor Drive.

Parking lots are accessible at Bentleyville “Tour of Lights”, the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC), or the Great Lakes Aquarium. Parking is $5 for each location.
