Bok Tower Gardens, Part 2

Today’s post features the most unique feature of Bok Tower Gardens … the tower, itself (In Part 1,“Bok Tower Gardens, Part 1”, I featured a few images of the garden landscape).

The tower consists of multiple levels (all closed to the public). The entrance to the tower consists of a beautiful, brass door. On one of the upper levels of the tower, resides a “60-bell Carillon Bell & Playing Cabinet”. At noon, an expert carillonneur, a full-time position, plays an assortment of music, using these bells … meanwhile, visitor’s to the garden flock around the tower to sit and listen to the wonderful bell concert!

At the top of the Tower, 205-feet above the base, are eight marble heron statues.
