The tower, the park are great to visit and explore. We loved climbing the tower as children and it's still awesome to see the dingle tower passing by or actually visiting. The park is sweet and offers great views of the Northwest Arm!

At a lovely place along the water, this tower is a stately piece of regional history. Lots of steps to the top, but the view is worth it.
