  • Unfortunately, we were here on a Tuesday. The fort itself was closed. We could there be outdoor hiking. The park is beautiful. The view over the river here is wonderful. That made fortunately what is good. Hopefully the next time open.

  • A national park with plenty of space to picnic. You can visit the inside It will take you 2-3 hours to visit depending in your interest in reading signs. Guided tour is offered and pricing is fair. I really like the fact they now offer a kind of treasure hunt for kids a fun way to visit with younger crowd.
  • Beautifull area where you can walk, bike, inline skate... A lot of green area. Lack of picnik table but plenty of space to put a blanket.
  • Great place to picnic and enjoy a day with the family visiting the fort and learning about the history of the region.
  • Too bad there's a pokemon invasion now, but great historical place to visit in very quaint city
  • Historic site. Well kept. Kids loved the place.
