Pitiful. It has been there since at least 2007. It used to be all grey and looked even worse, or more bleak at least.
It used to be a stucco box.

The crazy thing about the 2007 streetview is how bad the entrance to Observation Park used to be.

It's not that bad! Especially if you have a couple of beers at the bottom before you head back up.

It isn't the best, but it is also pretty easy to use Holly to 17th.

Biking that hill seems like a challenge. I've known some who do it for "fun", but I fail to see the entertainment value, haha.
