Mt. Storm Features

Mt. Storm Park

Clifton's 57-acre Mt. Storm is the site of the 19th-century estate of Robert Bowler. The Temple of Love gazebo-pavilion is all that remains of Bowler's once grand homestead; it was designed in 1850 by Adolph Strauch, former supervisor of the Imperial Gardens in Vienna and designer of Spring Grove cemetery. In his magnificent home (razed in 1917) Bowler entertained the Prince of Wales, Charles Dickens and other 19th-century celebrities.

For modern-day visitors, Mt. Storm Park offers a shelter, playground and overlook with views of the Clifton Skyline and the Millcreek Valley. It also is known for its awesome sledding hill in the winter.
