This tower is well worth the trek up the hill to go and visit. Be aware that the stairs inside the tower are quite steep and small with little space for passing people as you go up and down, so if you aren't a fan of confined space it might be best to go on a quieter day. However the views are well worth the climb with two levels of viewing platforms, both offer excellent views out across the city. On the top most level there are plaques which tell you what you are looking out at and the distance to them, it also includes other cities and the distance to Canada which is the land that John Cabot discovered in 1497. It's wonderful to see a 360 degree view of the city from above.
I's really nice that the tower is free to go up and have a look out over the city. It is probably best to go up on a sunny day to get the most from the view, but going on an overcast day doesn't stop you appreciating them, it also means that the tower and park are less crowded. The surrounding park land is very peaceful and a haven for wildlife. It seems that people feed the squirrels there as they are quite friendly and you can approach them without them running away.
