historic site

All the trails here are blacktop or paved. Only one new trail is straw. Most of the area is flat terrain. The big hill where the cannons are, in the center of the park has a set of stairs. You can take them if you want a short cut to the Waterfront or Pier.

Walking around this forgotten historical site is great for a quick family outing. There is a playground near the water for younger kids. The loop is made of asphalt and easy on your feet and stroller friendly. At the top of the loop you can see water and a small beach area. I would stay off the rocks on the beach. Kids will have fun looking into some of the cells. But sadly most of the ones you can explore are covered in graffiti.

The trail was paved and well-maintained, although there was a lot of garbage in some areas. It was a very easy walk and suitable for all ages and most fitness levels. We had an enjoyable time exploring the various batteries and other structures located on the property. We also strolled down to the water. Overall, it was a nice way to kill a few hours on a chilly Monday morning.

Good walk, friendly atmosphere. May even see a snake if you pay close attention. Also holds history with the historic dungeons.
