Tower Of Power

I've driven past the tower in the distance many times, but only from a distance. I have no idea what tower that is nor it's purpose, but it's always stood out to me. Perhaps one of the local photo bloggers can help me out with the name. This is about as close as I usually get to the tower. It's on my list of things to find and get a better look one day when I have the time. As I'm taking the photo I'm on Highway 280 heading south and I'm about to merge with Interstate 94, the view is to the west.

Ha, am a big fan of the Tower of Power but don't have a clue as to what kind of tower it is.

Is it too big to be a water tower?

I don't know what happened to my previous post. I think it's Prospect Park, a lovely small neighborhood right off University Avenue. Let me know if that's correct. If not, at least visit the area. Quiet and lovely homes.

It is Prospect Park's water tower. It's a great landmark close to the border of Minneapolis and Saint Paul just off the University campus. Once (or maybe twice) a year, the tower is opened for climbing. It's possible to climb to the top where there are large arches. As you can see this tower from all over the city (particularly from the west looking east) you would be able to see quite a ways from the top of the tower.
