  • Access the park via North Avenue, Ethan Allen Boulevard, or the 127 Bike-Path bridge.

  • Learn more about the Ethan Allen Park’s natural and cultural history.

The Ethan Allen Tower is opened by volunteers called the Tower Keypers. These neighborhood volunteers fill an important need and provide the City with the capacity to keep this beautiful, public amenity open to the community.

Ethan Allen Tower Opening Schedule:

  • Mothers Day to Memorial Day – Weekends only
  • Memorial Day to Indigenous Peoples Day – Daily
  • Hours: the tower typically opens by 10 a.m. and closes just before sunset.

Periodically, something comes up and the tower cannot be opened. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. It is one of the limitations of a fully volunteer-led program.
