Great view on a clear day. I went with my family to the top of the tower and everyone, both kids and adults, enjoyed it. I would recommend making the trip.

A neat, relatively tall tower in the park. Unfortunately, it was closed. There is an elevator going up it.

This is a quick and inexpensive trip. Tower Park has many fun events with bands and face painting. The tower has a glass elevator that takes you to two levels of observation decks. Great views all around.
