First, ignore the address "57 Fort Street," even though the stone gates proclaim "Fort Griswold." (Although it does take you to the beautiful Ebenezer Avery house, but that's a different review.) You want to find the intersection of Monument St and Park Ave to enter the gates of the fort. I am a history major, so a Revolutionary War battle site was great for me, but it was also a great park for my 7-year-old grandson - but be advised the park warns against climbing on the earthworks. There are plenty of spots offering a great view of the Thames River and Groton without breaking the rules! The remaining historical features are well labeled and maintained to help interpret the events. Definitely worth the drive!
