Stage Fort park is one of my favorite destination in Gloucester. It's an absolutely beautiful park with a very nice children's playground and a wonderful visitor's center. Half Moon beach is so quaint and the view from the top of the rock is breathtaking. I enjoy just watching boats go by and soaking in the refreshing air and my kids always enjoy the huge playground. The playground there is every kids dream sporting rock climbing, spinning wheel, swings, pirate ships, see-saw.

The trail is a little short so I usually extend it and walk along the scenic Western Ave all the way to the Fishermen's Memorial or even all the way to Fort Point on the other end. There's a couple of nice clam shack in town so that is always a treat.
