Our last visit was with family and as usual we all enjoyed the view from here. There are a number of steps to climb so you have to keep that in mind when you go there. Had a nice breeze as well which we enjoyed.

Loved this family oriented park. Climbed the tower (closes at dark) for magnificent views. The Park itself is family friendly, picinic tables, climbing apparatus, with some great sandy beach for sand castle building. Loved the evening walk there

This area is often overlooked by tourists and city visitors and is a bit out of the way. It's easy enough to find and enjoyable once you get there. Stop and watch the water traffic and enjoy the views.

I was not expecting much from this excursion, boy was I wrong. The tower is like stepping back in time. You need to be able to walk up a winding staircase to get to the top of the tower, which is open to the public,...More
