Review of Fort Revere Park

Fort Revere Park
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Fort Revere has a wonderful history, but the Fort now is showing signs of age and vandalism. There's graffiti on most of the exterior and interior walls, that takes away from what the Fort actually represents.
On a better note, the view from the Fort is breath taking! One can literally see all of Hull, as well as Boston Light. It really is a sight to behold.

This was a very unique experience. In all my travels I have never seen anything like it. Exploring the area we came across this old fort, not knowing it was there. The Old Water Tower is what caught our eye 1st. Fabulous structure by the way, closed to the public. The concrete remains of the fort overlooks some outer harbor islands. What a beautiful view & nice area for a picnic. Except for one young couple it was all but deserted. The fort is a series of concrete rooms & tunnels below ground level, entirely covered with Graffiti. The site was fairly clean that day, no smell, just Graffiti covering the walls & ceilings. As a photographer I was thrilled and yet disturbed at the same time. I would not allow dogs on the site, but I would like to go back in the dark with a flashlight! Spooky! This place had everything I enjoy, a little history, the water, a view & a place to take pictures.

We bring all of our visitors to Fort Revere as it is interesting and played an important role in the defense of Boston harbor. The Fort overlooks the harbor islands and provides a spectacular view of the surrounding area. The massive fortifications are still intact and show how the defenders lived 100 years ago. Unfortunately much of the place is covered with graffiti and needs to be better maintained. The original water/watch tower is still there, but access has been prohibited for several years. Overall, the Fort is worth the trip and is free!

I enjoyed seeing this park just would like some guideness. I felt like some history was here unmarked. Perhaps time of year.

The Fort Revere Park was nice to drive up to and see. It houses the remains of two seacoast fortifications. All that is left is the concrete structure. Would have been nice if it was done up with cannons, etc., as when it was being used as a fort.

The view of the harbor from here is good for some pictures.
