Came back to this tower for another visit after a considerable gap. Good exercise to climb it quickly and time yourself to the top. My daughter was able to do it in 30 seconds, which is not bad for a young child.

Walking up the swath of grass from the Zamia cafe to the DNA tower is one of the most pleasant outings on a summer day. Then stretch yourself with an easy climb to the top for super views. Getting in touch with nature!

The DNA Tower is actually like a strand of DNA, the basis of human life, as discovered by Crick and Watson. It's quite a climb to get to the top -- the view is magnificent. It's in King's Park -- a bit isolated but it's...More
