Along with it's 200’ Observation Tower, the park possesses a beautiful water fountain, children's playground, pavilion, multiple tables for enjoying a lunch, and a bronze monument of Abraham Lincoln designed by Gutzon Borglum (designer of Mt. Rushmore) that is identical to two other sculptures, one in front of Lincoln's Tomb in Springfield, Illinois, and the other in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda at Washington, D.C.

Glide 200 feet to the top of the tower in our enclosed glass elevator to "View the Wonder" for many miles of the Illinois River Valley. On top of 500,000 gallons of clean, pure well water, there are three separate observation decks designed to provide a spectacular panorama in all directions. There are three telescopes available for even closer viewing. This structure is the only one of its kind in the U.S.A. The Observation Tower is open from the last part of April through October (weather permitting).
