We made a quick stop here as we were driving through Liverpool. Unfortunately we were unable to go inside the lighthouse as it had already closed for the day, but the surrounding park and water views around here are lovely.

This lighthouse is in good shape, we did not climb to the top, it is located not far from our hotel in a park.

Free admission. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse and sound the horn. Stairs are steep, if you have mobility issues you will not be able to do this. A short information video plays on the second level. Tiny gift shop on first...More

We ended up here by following the Lighthouse trail on the south shore of Nova Scotia. I liked that this lighthouse was open so that you could go inside and climb up to look out. The climb was steep, but doable for most I expect....More

I've been to Liverpool a couple of times and only recently happened up Fort Point Park. Wow! It is a beautiful spot and a must see if you are in the area. Take a picnic or just stroll along the water. Seems very well maintained.
