Dayton’s iconic tree tower reopens just in time for summer 

Published: Tuesday, May 01, 2018 @ 5:55 AM

Five Rivers MetroParks will spend as much as $390,465 to repair a tree tower and observation deck that closed in September after being damaged by fungal disease.

After closing for more than 600 days, one of Cox Arboretum MetroPark’s most popular amenities has reopened.

Reconstruction of the 65-foot-tall tree tower took place over the winter. Here’s what we know about the reopening of Cox Arboretum MetroPark Tree Tower:

1. CLOSING TIME

The tower closed in September 2016 after crews found soft spots in the structure’s three support logs. Fungus developed in the wood, and the tower was closed for safety reasons. Engineers determined the logs needed to be replaced.
