20-Ft. Tall Eiffel Tower and 8-Ft. Tall Indian

Very cool site and beautiful park. The fish hatchery building is not to be ignored either. Pay the 25 cents to feed the fish -- they jump out of the water! The Eiffel Tower almost seems enshrined in the trees, and its atmosphere bears little resemblance to the original Paris, but it is a great attraction in its own right.

Careful that at times the park may be closed and locked. You can still view the tower and the Indian from the fence, but a bummer as they are too far away for a good picture.

This community's Eiffel Tower is 20 feet tall, made of welded steel. It was built in 1980 by industrial arts students at Chippewa Hills High School. It stands in Paris Park, dwarfed by trees that have grown around it. It's not tall enough to compete with other Eiffel Tower Replicas.
