Now that the weather is warming up, it is a perfect time to enjoy the rooftop garden and sundeck areas. The garden and sundeck actually are on the roof, over the mall area of our building, and accessible from the 2nd floor using the same door that leads to the Health Club.
The garden, located on the south side of the roof, is available for use by all Park Tower residents and their accompanied guests. There are planters with trees and flowers, sitting areas with benches, and plenty of chairs with webbed seats and backs. Except for inclement weather, such as when there is a risk of ice falling from the tower, the roof garden is open for your enjoyment.
The sundeck is located on the north side, directly outside the pool area. However, you must be a member of the health club to use it.
Gas grills are stored at the far east end in the garden area. Residents can reserve them at the management office during regular business hours or through the doorman after hours. Park Tower maintains the gas supply. Renters are welcome to reserve, but must have the written permission of their landlords. Grills must be cleaned after use, else the building will assess a cleaning fee. Additional guidelines on grilling are included with the reservation paperwork.
And when using the roof garden, please keep in mind that there are residents in the apartments just above the garden. Do try to keep noise to a minimum. Enjoy!
