I was pleased to find this park. It's free and comes with nice views of the George Washington bridge, the river and parts of north Manhattan. It's safe and lots of parking spaces. You could see sections of the historic fort - canons and cabins, etc. They do really need to take care of the walkways. There are many cracks and some potholes so you have to watch where you're going, and the trees need some care. It could use some sprinkling of wildflower seeds to put some color. If there's a park conservancy group, this place would be amazing.

It’s a great site to check out. Amazing views with great trails and information signage. The bastions and replica fortifications are outstanding. Visitor center is a great place to start or end and has a great chronology of the 1776 campaign.

There's a visitor center, but there wasn't really much to see there and the workers seemed pretty bored. If you read through all the signs it might take 45 minutes or so.
I liked walking around outside a little more. There's a couple battery setups to see and reconstructed buildings. But it is good to walk around. It's not really spread out and there are a lot of shade trees.
On the north end of the park, there's a really good view of the George Washington Bridge.

Just across the GWB, the park is kept clean, with nice paths around the park through the reconstructed Revolutionary War fort houses, cannon batteries and redoubts. All with a commanding view of the Hudson and Manhattan across the river. You can see why Ft Lee and Ft. Washington in Washington Heights, Manhattan were so strategic. This time the day was clear. Could see clear across Manhattan, and the Bronx, and see the Whitestone Bridge Towers. The /north end of the park offers a great view just above the George Washington Bridge, the Northern Tip of Manhattan and straight up to Yonkers and beyond. There is a small museum with Revolutionary War artifacts. An electronic diorama shows the British advances and battles in the New York area and explains what happened at Ft. Lee. Numerous times around the year, on weekends park personnel re-enact fort activities. If you go during the week you may be able to hook on to a re-enactment given to visiting schools. Its nice for school age kids who are learning about the revolution. An history buffs.
