Arsenal FC Tower

Hey guys! This is my first post to this forum. I’m currently living in Etobicoke, Ontario, and I’ve been seeing some of the nearby sights. One of the best places I’ve been to so far was the old tower on the old Arsenal FC range just off Marie Curtis park. It’s really easy to get to; all the fences that need to be bypassed all have convenient gaps. The tower itself seems to be relatively solid (I’m also very light), so I climbed up the girders at the base and to the ladder that got me the rest of the way up. It’s a very long climb. Not recommended for anyone uncomfortable with heights. I’m not sure how high the tower is, but it’s definitely sever times higher than it needs to be for a fall to be fatal. That said, there is a ladder going all the way up, so it’s hard to mess up. There are three places on the tower where you can get off the ladder. The first is a platform just under the drum, the second is a wraparound platform about halfway up. After this last, the ladder bends up to the top of the drum where there is a hole in the top of the drum with a second ladder going down into the drum. the inside is really interesting. It is pitch black with a ton of natural reverb. There’s quite a few mostly intact bird skeletons as well. The floor of the drum seemed very rusted, so I tried to stay on the ladder as much as I could.

I have pictures posted in the link below. Sorry about the poor lighting. Photography is far from my strong suit.

Definitely check this place out if you like heights!
