“Nice park, but ask a local how to get there!”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

The short walk to this observation tower is right up our alley, but the drive to get there was not! Look at JWren's review also. "The second" entrance he refers to is the way our GPS instructed us to get to the park. It was crazy! Steep and winding! We continued down the road when we exited, which was JWren's "first" entrance... piece of cake.

Cool that you can walk up the (modern) stairs inside the tower. The view from the tower was wonderful. The walk up the path was refreshing after being in the city.

Go see this park, but go armed with directions from someone else than your GPS!!

“Nice park, hard to get too”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

The park is on the hill behind the city. It has two entrances, one on either end of the city. The first one we tried was the one closest to the interstate exit. After driving UP there it was closed off to traffic. So we went through town around to the other. We thought the first entrance was steep to get to, the second was almost scary steep. We made it up there and hiked up to the tower. Cool view, cool place to see once you get up there.

“Liked it, Was ok.”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We were looking for a nice park to share a box pizza & bottle of wine for a afternoon picnic. Was a little surprised at the lack of facilities at the park. Picnic tables sparse, unmarked roads and trails. We did find a spot to relax and enjoy but not what we were expecting......

“Great place to walk, ski, hike, run etc..”
Reviewed 27 December 2012

The only reason that I did not give this park an excellent is that they have had some difficulty recently with "bad" dog owners not reeling in aggressive or overly eager dogs.
