River Overlook of Alms Park
« on: May 14, 2005, 12:40:42 PM »
They've had the sign up for this project for probably a year or two now, but it looks like they finally got it started - in fact, it's almost finished.  Here's a picture from October 24th, 2004:



...and here's the same view from today:



A few more shots:





The round stone wall was already here, but it really needed some work - the top layer was falling apart.  You can see in this shot that they've fixed it and put a new top layer of stone on it:




I think this is one of the most unappreciated overlooks in the city - when folks go to Alms, they normally go to watch the planes at Lunken.  But where else can you go to see the 275 bridge to your left, and Mt. Adams to your right?  It's a great spot, especially in the winter with the leaves gone...

Holy crap...they did that fast!  I was just there a couple of months ago and all I saw was that faded sign you were referring to.  Then I tried to find out some information on it and I turned up nothing.  I then came to the conclusion that the faded sign was just a relic from some bygone era.

Thanks for clearing up the mystery!
