  • Though the fort is very small, it has got a good view of the harbor and the city of Saint John, New Brunswick. A good view spot and talking pictures and memories.  more »
  • After walking along the entire waterfront in St. Johns, my wife and I hiked up the hill to Fort Howe. Great exercise and worth every step. It was a warm day so I hope we burned a few hundred calories.  more »
  • We visited here during our recent stay to St. John. We liked to walk so it was a nice walk around the Fort. Beautiful views of the city. It was a little overcast the day we were there.  more »

  • Great place to sit and view the harbour. Could use a couple seats for people walking though.
  • One of Saint John's best views of Uptown and a significant historical location. It's worth a stop if you've never been.
  • This place has some amazing history. I go here often to have a coffee and watch cruise ships come and go. There is a ton of traffic here though. People driving beside you looking in and then pulling away. Not sure what's up with that. So not overly quiet, some may say it's full of creeps but I ignore and enjoy the beautiful views.
  • Great views of the city and surrounding area.
  • Great view of uptown and Nice to see when the crew ships are in
