The winter issue of the Glen Park News featured a story on a hike to the Blue Tower, about a mile and a half to the southeast of Glen Park. It was one of Dolan Eargle’s on-going series of Interesting Things In and Around Glen Park.
On Christmas Day the Clark family of Chenery St. decided to take the hike themselves. They sent this photo, of the view from the foot of the Blue Tower back towards our own Blue School. The former water tower is in John McLaren Park just off at Ina St.
If you’d like to take the walk yourself, here’s a map. The tower is most easily accessible from Excelsior Ave or from Burrows St. @ Peru.
