Visitors to the Mount Penn Preserve will notice that there is a large structure situated within the park. This structure is the William Penn Fire Tower. The imposing stone and reinforced concrete tower is 120 feet tall and sits atop Mt. Penn, overlooking the City of Reading and its surroundings. The tower is situated on Skyline Drive, one mile from Reading's landmark Pagoda (The BAMBA Logo was created from its likeness). From the top of the tower, there is a 60-mile panoramic view. The tower is 950 feet above 5th and Penn Street, the center of the city, and 1,015 feet above the Schuylkill River, and 1,239 feet above sea level.
