Tower Hill Lookout & Heritage Garden


Tower Hill, Lookout Tower and Gardens

Parry Sound's 30m high observation tower provides stunning 360 degree views of the harbour Georgian Bay. After taking 130 steps up, you will be able to gaze down upon boats, float planes and barges, and the famous Canadian Pacific Railway trestle bridge below you.

Below the lookout tower is the Tower Hill Heritage Garden where you can wander through beautiful gardens that are planted and maintained by volunteers.

Also at the base of the lookout tower is the Museum on Tower Hill where you can learn about the history of our area.

COVID-19 Park Update

(July 15, 2021) - Everyone using these outdoor recreational amenities is required to physically distance from anyone who is not in their household or permitted social circle.  This means staying 2 meters or 6 feet away from other people.  If you arrive at a park, for example that is crowded, you should wait until there is enough space to physically distance or return at another time. 

The Tower Hill Observation Lookout is now open to the public.  Please observe physical distancing and masking as necessary while using this amenity. Users of the Town of Parry Sound’s parks system are reminded that these areas are available for use at your own risk and are not regularly sanitized.  An inherent risk of exposure to communicable diseases including COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.
