MCPC Observation Towers

Mercer County Park project by E&LP

In order to take advantage of the expansive views of the larger park custom designed observation towers were sought by the Mercer County Park Commission. In conjunction with ETM Associates, E&LP designed, located, and documented two tower structures.

The towers are accessible via ramps and stairs, with custom signage indicating several species of birds that can be found in the park. The towers have taken on a variety of uses by park patrons including resting, picnicking, reading and bird watching to name a few. They are an instantly recognizable element in the park and contribute to the overall uniqueness of the park design and branding.
