  • The historical significance of the Old Fort was evident in this well-presented exhibit. We couldn't get into the buildings as they were setting up for a Revolutionary War era demonstration for the wee...  more »
  • Nice place for a walk if you're in the area, but not worth making a special trip. As we expected, from reading other reviews, the fort was closed and is only open for special occasions/reenactments, s...  more »
  • I stumbled upon this park and bridge quite by accident. Having twenty minutes to spare despite being on business, this park with its Historic Fort Wayne and MLK Memorial Bridge was worth a quiet and s...  more »

  • Fun to see and drive through. Is love to go on the haunted tour. Wish they offered historical tours on the weekend. It’s a must see.
  • Pretty mellow, historical fort. A few dozen historical buildings in various states of care. Also a Native American Indian burial mound (remains are supposed to be about 900 years old!) Lovely Detroit River views and if you follow the trail that runs along the soccer fields to the water, there is a small grove of trees with some picnic tables. The fort is operated by both the city of Detroit and the Army and is almost 100 acres. The only reason 4 stars instead of 5 is because it's a shame that so many of the historical buildings are being left to rot instead having basic care to thrive and be utilized by the community. There is a decent amount of parking here. Be sure to stop at the kiosk on your way in. I'm not sure if there is a cost as I've only come for the youth soccer, but I think all City parks are free.
  • Love it here!!! Such great history!! Used to ghost hunt there and have a ton of evidence
  • A great look at a historic fortress. We were able to walk all around the grounds and explore at our own pace. The area around it has been cleaned up and several vacant buildings removed in the last few years, definitely worth a trip to see it when they have an event going on.
  • This place is amazing. So much history !
