  • We went during the Open Door event and where able to go inside and climb up to the viewing walk. It was quite cool. Unfortunately the huge subdivision to the east is not very picturesque. The sewage treatment plant on the other side of the river to the west is undergoing a very large expansion as well. The tower is attractive, but the setting is bland.
  • Lovely place to visit and see a small part of Waterloo Region history which began in 1800 with the arrival of a few Mennonite families from Pennsylvania. Playground at Kuntz Park for younger children, Walter Bean Grand River Trail and a remarkable view of the Grand River for everyone. 300 Lookout Lane, Kitchener, Ontario N2P 2X8.
  • It's a cool landmark though a bit confusing. Had to check online to find that it's a memorial and not some sort of watch tower.
  • There is a nice open area a play structure. The tower was padlocked when I visited, so I was unable to go to the top.
  • This is a really pretty and historic landmark with great access trails for walking. Follow the trails to see a little more history of some of the first settlers barns and stables. Great look out over the Eagle Sanctuary close by as well.

Where to stay in Kitchener

For a relatively large city, Kitchener doesn't offer a particularly broad range of accommodations. In the city center, King Street offers a handful of mid-range hotels, but little beyond that. Your best bet is to look southeast to Centreville Chicopee, where you can find a cluster of chain hotels, or northwest to the adjoining city of Waterloo, which offers some nicer hotels by its main park.
