Tower Park

Monday morning Peoria greetings to all!!!!!

I’ve been in Peoria since the early 80’s when I first came here to go to school at Bradley University and in all the time that I’ve been here, I’ve never been to the top of Tower Park in Peoria Heights! I think that it’s always that way that you just never visit some of the places in your local area that some might think of as a tourist area. Here in Central Illinois, we have lots of places like that, so it’s good to get out and support our local attractions!

I was up at the top of the tower and for those that have never been up there, it’s an incredible view! They say that on a clear day you can see 20 miles and I believe them! I was up there at sundown and I was just blown away with all that you could see! All I had was my point and shoot camera, but I still got some incredible snaps! I can’t wait to go again with my big boy camera when the trees start budding and there gets to be a little color in the river valley!!!

Here’s one of my snaps and the view is up the Illinois River to the North and also out to the East as well!!!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and I hope that you have a great week to come!!!
