A Very Nice Park
Jun 2020
Tower Park in Peoria Heights is a nice place to spend some time, either visiting the top of Water Tower and enjoying some great scenic views, or sit around the fountain, or watch some live performances on the stage of a large gazebo. Or just walk around with kids - there's a nice area with playgrounds there. A special Gold Star Memorial is located in Tower Park, as well as the most memorable Bronze Bust of Abraham Lincoln.

The park is well maintained, landscaping is pretty, there are many benches in the park, and plenty of shade from large trees. Currently, you can visit the park, but for visitors Water Tower isn't open yet.

Best View of the World's Most Beautiful Drive
Oct 2019
Whether you are a resident of the Peoria area or a visitor, the view from the tower is something you have to see! The Illinois River Valley is gorgeous all year round, but especially pretty in the fall with the changing colors. You see beautiful Grandview Drive with its many mansions overlooking the widest part of the Illinois River. In the summer you might catch a glimpse of a sailboat regatta. After your tower visit, have a picnic on Grandview Drive, proclaimed by Teddy Roosevelt a "World's Most Beautiful Drive". There is a small fee for the elevator up to the top of the tower.

We came here on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn't busy at all. We were the only ones on the tower. Great view from all points. Well worth a visit. Price of admission is 2 bucks. In scared of heights and didn't like the elevator ride up. I wanted to take the stairs.

This should be listed in the Peoria attractions, and it would be a top-3 for sure

The views are amazing! There are even three levels, so rain or sun won't bother you if the weather is too much. A can't miss for visitors for sure, and even locals. Go go go go! Just check the hours first.

Great view on a clear day. I went with my family to the top of the tower and everyone, both kids and adults, enjoyed it. I would recommend making the trip.

A neat, relatively tall tower in the park. Unfortunately, it was closed. There is an elevator going up it.

This is a quick and inexpensive trip. Tower Park has many fun events with bands and face painting. The tower has a glass elevator that takes you to two levels of observation decks. Great views all around.

Great view!
Jul 2017 • Couples
We had dinner near here but didn't know about the tower until we were back in our hotel, it sounded cool so we went back the next day. I'm afraid of heights but had no trouble enjoying it. It is inexpensive, only $2 to go up the tower. I thought we were at the top when we got out of the elevator but there were stairs that took you up two more levels. I did get a little nervous on the top level but just focused on the view, which was awesome! Definitely worth the small fee to checkout the view!
