Robbinsdale’s other Water Tower
Robbinsdale’s 500,000 gallons.water tower was built in the early 1960′s, but the fun really began after North Memorial Hospital built a six story office building and parking ramp next to the tower in the early 1970′s. Neighborhood boys spent long summer days flinging GI Joe dolls equipped with plastic bag parachutes off the top of the ramp. At least one ended up dangling from an access ladder on the side of the water tower. How hard could it be to climb up there and get it?
