Coevorden water tower

The water tower in Coevorden dates from 1914 and was designed by architect J.P. Hazeu. The 32,2 meter high tower is located near the Van Heutszpark, the town's park. The structure was thoroughly renovated in 2004 and was given the status national heritage site. In 2014 the outside was taken on which made it look brand-new again.

Since I grew up in the town of Coevorden and lived there for 35 years I must have rode this road (Dr Picardtlaan) a zillion times by bicycle. Lots of memories!

Have a wonderful weekend :)

  8. Even water tower look like windmill (without wings) in your country, or it appears maybe more to the lighthouse. But it's very nice looking.
