One of my favorite spots at Eagle Creek Park is where Fishback Creek feeds into Eagle Creek Reservoir. This is a truly spectacular spot by canoe or kayak. And now the Eagle Creek Foundation and a group of ornithologists have improved it further with the construction of an observation platform that juts into the reservoir. This spot can be accessed by parking on city-owned property located on the southside of Wilson Road several hundred feet west of Crown Point Road, and than walking approximately one half mile to the southeast. The site of the observatory is on the southeast corner of a seven acre former homestead of famed artist Cassilly Adams. I have written elsewhere about Adams, who was a very significant former resident of the area until his passing in 1926.
