“Defender of Boston Harbor”
Review of Fort Revere Park

Fort Revere Park
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We bring all of our visitors to Fort Revere as it is interesting and played an important role in the defense of Boston harbor. The Fort overlooks the harbor islands and provides a spectacular view of the surrounding area. The massive fortifications are still intact and show how the defenders lived 100 years ago. Unfortunately much of the place is covered with graffiti and needs to be better maintained. The original water/watch tower is still there, but access has been prohibited for several years. Overall, the Fort is worth the trip and is free!

I enjoyed seeing this park just would like some guideness. I felt like some history was here unmarked. Perhaps time of year.

The Fort Revere Park was nice to drive up to and see. It houses the remains of two seacoast fortifications. All that is left is the concrete structure. Would have been nice if it was done up with cannons, etc., as when it was being used as a fort.

The view of the harbor from here is good for some pictures.

While visiting the Hull Lifesaving Museum, a "local" recommended we check out Ft Revere Park. Incredible views! Sadly, the remains are covered with graffiti, but even that adds a bit of artistic flair. I just wish there was more information re: the history of the Fort readily available onsite. In this age of smartphones, though, it didn't take long to "read all about it." ;-) I agree with the other posters... pack a lunch and enjoy the views.

This is a Revolutionary War fort built to protect the harbor and continued into WWII. Unspoiled by excessive tourism. To food stands or gift shops here. Bring a lunch and a blanket a watch the world go by. A good camera is a must!
