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.

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!
