I love Seattle but have never seen it from here before. Must go there next time. Loved the photos!


A really interesting post with great pics esp the window fences.


The views from within and without are fantastic, all!


what a great place for image making and the fences are wonderful.


What a wonderful tower and good it if free for the public to go up in. The views are breath taking and I love the railings.

Hey-- best pictures of the best place ever... that tour guide of yours made some difference, I'm sure! Hope you'll return soon, we have more secret spots to show you.

This is one place I've not been in Seattle but I wouldn't mind going there since it does have those nice safety fences. I have a bit of fear of heights but I like the views you captured.

Lovely shots - especially that first one!

We never knew about this place, in spite of all the years we lived in Washington. You are such a good tour guide!


That is a lot of steps, but the views are worth it... Michelle


Oh, I love to go up the tower and enjoy the view; the Tower in Seattle's Volunteer Park is gorgeous, Sallie♡♡♡ Love the first picture of the observation deck as well♪ I wish I could visit Tokyo tower and Tokyo Sky Tree some day p:-) The window fences truly is ELEGANT♪♪♪

Looks like a great place to visit and the price is right! That's A LOT of steps, however!


More lovely views and excellent, detailed info. You really make the most of every moment!


Thanks for sharing this. I know about the Space Needle but have never heard of this water tower. Great shots, too.


My hat is off to the mother who went the extra mile for the Princess party how cool! Im sure you enjoyed your tower much more than the Space Needle tour with all the crowds.

Interesting looking building. Big public parks are such a gift from the past.

I can only say that the 180 steps were worthwhile !


Surprising how beautiful it is inside with the windows and even the protective grating.The views are great too but am still mesmerised by the viewing space and your perseverance with those 180 steps.


I lived a summer within sight of this park and never went into the tower. Plus didn't know this is one of the Olmsted parks. The view is superb, and I like the ornate fences. Something else to add to my 'to see' list.


Loved these photos! I lived in Seattle for awhile and never knew about this water tower. Love the window fences!


What a great tower, I've never even heard of it. I'll have to add it to my list if I'm in Seattle again!


What a find. It seems like every city has those great low cost or no cost places to go.


Wonderful pictures. I will have to remember this place when I finally get to Seattle!

Yes … the history behind the name is a bit surprising. What a unique place to have a birthday party and to see the beautiful green of Seattle’s landscape.


Sallie, you had wonderful views of the city.. The window fences are pretty. Great post, thanks for sharing.. Have a happy week!

What an interesting place and great photos from the top of the tower. A very interesting view of the Space Needle too! Hmmm! Not sure about those 180 steps to get up there :-(


i like the window fences! and now i want a princess party! :)


How great is that to be able to view a city all 360 deg.


What beautiful captures/views of Seattle and what a great place to view it from!! Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a great new week!


You make a water tower look like art. And I love that fenced view!


Great shots and interesting post.
