Water Tower Restaurant

There is a text and photo gallery inside the base structure that tells about the water tower. A small elevator takes you up to the restaurant and bar, where the views of Lethbridge and the prairies are worth a short visit. Food was not cheap, but it was good. The water tower appears to be a perfect place to erect multiple billboards.

Water Tower Restaurant

The city of Lethbridge built this 300,000 gallon water tower back in the 1950s and apparently lost use for it by the year 2000. In 2003, the city sold the tower to a developer, which renovated the structure into a rather classy restaurant.

The restaurant, Ric's Grill, now allows patrons to have a meal 150 feet above the ground while seeing all that there is to see in Southern Alberta...mainly rolling prairies and some of the Rocky Mountains.
