“The views across Marblehead Sound make the visit worthwhile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

The fort itself may not be much to look at, but the views from the fort are great! A nice place to walk after a good meal, especially if the weather is cool and crisp.

“Nice short stroll.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

May be hard to find parking. Nice short stroll. You can actually dip into the ocean at the bottom of the short hill. Fort Sewall is a small fort with benches around the walk area. Very nice views over the harbor and the ocean.

We go here frequently. It's a beautiful view and a short walk into town. Go to the harbor as well. Bring your camera!

“Small park, great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

The park is fairly small but the views of surrounding Marblehead are amazing. The fort aspect how ever is not really there is is just a view iron doors in the side of a hill that led to a dungeon or something

“A beautiful view of Marblehead harbor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

This was a nice small park that could be walked to once you park in Marblehead near the bay. It has placards depicting some of the history, plenty of benches for sitting and viewing the harbor and a small grassy area for a game of whiffleball or other sports.
