The 50-foot coastal observation tower at Lake Erie Bluﬀs overlooks the south shore of Lake Erie. A wooden stairway with multiple viewing platforms leads up to a deck with a 360-degree view of the lake and the surrounding shoreline, woods, fields, and wetlands. Aware of how slick wooden steps can be in wet weather, Lake Metroparks procured Safeguard® Hi-Traction® anti-slip step covers for the stairways. The FRP fiberglass covers are beige so as not to detract from the scenic views. Industrial-size grit keeps visitors from slipping.
Enjoy the view! Lake Metroparks has installed a webcam at the top of the tower. Check out the live conditions on Lake Erie – especially the spectacular sunsets.
