This tower was built in 2017 by Davana LLC utilizing parts of the West Bay Fire Tower from Florida. It is located in the children's playground at the Grafton Lakes State Park and has had some special accommodations to make it suitable for small children. It is hoped that it will encourage families to visit the other fire tower in the park, Dickinson Hill, during their visit.
