Water Tower Park Water Tower Park is a hilltop park located one block to the west of Hoffman Park. The park, the former location of the City’s watertower, overlooks the Pine River Channel. It is accessible from both the Pine River Channel walkway and Park Avenue via a stairway. The main hilltop portion of the park is marked by a large cement patio, inlaid with a compass rose. Four cement blocks around the patio mark the former locations of the water tower’s struts. Benches are located at the top of the park, as well as down the park’s northern face. Because of this park’s slope, it is only accessible by stairs.
