I often ride my bike through Fort Totten. It is very peaceful and the scenery is lovely. You can even arrange a guided tour with the park ranger to see the actual fort that they have there. All together a great experience :]

Even though it is a Military Base, you can enter by foot and enjoy great views and empty space. Also you can see the beautiful scenery of old houses and even a museum in Fort Totten.
Great place everytime, been there several times.

visited the place during summer and fall. People were fishing on the shore. Nice to take a stroll around it and enjoy the peace and water.

I visit this place when its summer time and I want to take my kids to a local pool to enjoy. Its a walk from the entrance to walk all the way to the pool maybe 10-15 min walk. there is a large swimming pool and a kiddy pool. This past summer kiddie pool was closed due to budget cuts. The pool water is cold, not the best pools I prefer them to be heated...I don't like the fact that they close from 2-3pm or 3-4pm for a break/lunch. I think its a way of saving money or something...Everyone has to get out leave the pool area and then come back when they re open again. this is a big hassle, especially when you have kids with strollers..

its fun for kids to play in pool and all..but if I had to change anything..

I would put more staff so they open the kiddie pool without delays.
I would make the pools heated, because in the summer the water is ice cold
And I would rotate the lifeguards and the staff so they take turns at lunchtime so they don't have to close the whole pool area for 1 hr its a waste of time..
