  • The highest point in old town that provides a full panorama view of the area. The monument is not difficult to ascend as there are wooden steps with hand rails leading up there.  more »

  • Amazing views of the Bay and most of Yellowknife. A nice sunny day is perfect for viewing..you can watch the floatplanes take off and land..great hike up the multiple stairs
  • Awesome vantage point to view the city skyline, old town, and the bay with the houseboats, along with learning a bit of history about bush pilots in Yellowknife. Be aware though that the monument is on a hilltop so there are many stairs to climb to get to the top but the view is worth it. Very nice place to be for sunrises, sunsets, auroras, and night skies. Make sure to bring your camera.
  • While it may not seem like a lot, this is one of the nicest places in Yellowknife to get a panoramic view of Old Town the bay and the downtown area.
  • In Yellowknife for work, had some free time, went to see some sights. The monument is pretty neat, it overlooks a wide lake and some quiet neighborhoods, very picturesque and serene.
  • A must see of you are in Yellowknife! It has a great view of Old Town, as well as the harbour and also parts of downtown Yellowknife. Just need to climb some stairs to get there, and there is a ton of pieces of glass on the rocks, but other than that it is golden!
