“Interesting reconstruction”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

It looks more interesting from a boat in the harbor than it actually is. if you are in the area, make the stop, but I wouldn't make a destination of it.

“a hidden treasure”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Woodward Avenue in New Haven is a lovely place. It is right off the Pearl Harbor Memorial bridge. Fort Hale Park is a great place to take your younger children for a Saturday morning visit. During the summer they have people working to give you information about the park. In the off season you can walk through yourself. It is located in the Annex section of New Haven.

Years ago this place was great. Now, not so much. There are always seedy people hanging out here.

Reviewed March 19, 2012

I was very pleasantly surprised by this area of New Haven. Is this also known as Lighthouse Park?

“Not worth the effort”
Reviewed May 5, 2010

Some other websites (including Wikipedia) made this sound like something worth seeing. There was great signage off the freeway but at the end of our journey we ended up at a park with a picnic pavilion and a fishing pier. There was a small pile off something off in the distance but barriers prevented close up inspection. There were several cars in the parking lot with single men in them. We didn't hang around.
