Harrison Hills Park
Watts Memorial Overlook
The Watts Memorial Overlook is an amenity of Harrison Hills Park and is not associated with any particular grove, nor is it a rental option.
This overlook site is a memorial to Michael Watts; lifelong resident of the area who monitored pollution of the river and reported problems to the state environmental agency. When Mike Watts was given, by law, one half of all the fines collected by identifying polluters, he returned his share to the county with the request that they continue his efforts to keep our rivers clean.
From the Watts Memorial Overlook Deck (400' above the Allegheny River) you can see Butler, Armstrong and Westmoreland Counties.
The Overlook deck is accessible from the parking lot.
