Anniversary Hill Park is the largest City park in Holyoke. The front gate gives no indication of the park ahead.
We walked up via the road.
Wheelbarrow of forgotten gardens.
Oh, Ya, Those two trees will keep out large vehicles.
No picnics today.
Tower looks kind of phallic when you first see it.
Things have gotten worse since my visit last year.
The door was unlocked last year and we were able to walk up to the top, but not this year.
Looks like someone tried to burn the lock off the door.
Scott Tower is listed in the State Historical Database
We walked past the Cell tower site on our way out.
We took a path along the Highway.
Scary old tree.
Large sections of fencing missing along the highway.
On our way out I took some pictures of the various graffiti on the road.
Paths beaten through the broken fence near the entrance.
Evidence of the park being used for sexual encounters was all over the place.
Some pocket bikes, and pocket quads came buzzing down the road behind us as we were leaving.
