Location & Amenities

Tower Park is centrally located at Franklin and Evans streets, just a quarter-mile west of Calumet Avenue. The park is so-named because it is in the shadow of the city’s main water tower. View a map of Tower Park.

Playground equipment at this park is made entirely from recycled plastic and is a favorite of younger children. The park boasts several tennis courts as well as several basketball backboards, where pick-up games are played at all hours. A youth baseball field completes the park's facilities.


The Tower Park shelter, in the shade of several large trees, will accommodate approximately 50 persons. Restrooms are located in the shelter. Eight picnic tables are provided for use. View additional shelter reservation information.
