Open Tower Day – August 25, 2019

Volunteers in Period clothing for Open Tower Day

Open Tower Day was held on August 25, 2019. This is one of three days the tower is open to the public. This date corresponds with the birthday of the National Park Service.

As always, on the birthday of the NPS, visitors are allowed into the park for free. This year, August 25 occurred on a Sunday, so not only was it a fee free day, but it was also a weekend, and for some, the last weekend before school started. All of these meant the park was extremely busy. The line to go up in the tower was so long, rangers had to stop visitors from getting in line 30 minutes sooner than expected. In fact the main parking lot was full by early afternoon so finding a parking place was a chore for people.

A very special thanks to all of the volunteers who helped with Open Tower Day. This includes everyone who helped at the tower, Visitor Center, tidepools, Military Bunker, rovers and others who worked behind the scene. The event could not have happened without the help of the VIPs and the staff at Cabrillo is very appreciative of what we contribute to the park.
