    This is the featured park area of Gloucester. On a hill above the harbor, looking back at the city, it also has the information center and PARKING and a shuttle to attractions (seasonally).  more »

    I've been adventuring here since a kid and now I bring my own kids too; one of our favorite family places. Stage Fort in Gloucester Ma has two great beaches for swimming, an awesome kids park, and even a dog park. Rocks for climbing, paths to explore, and beautiful views. I always loved watching the fishing boats coming and going.

    I really like this place . You can rent the gazebo for weddings or music with a city permit of course or use half Moon beach or just have a picnic. Always refreshing on a hot day. Beautiful!

    Nice view and picnic locations for grilling and picnics. Awesome parks for children and a little beach for everyone. Only caution is the bathrooms they get disgusting so get in there early before they get gross.

    Beautiful picnic area, great views of the ocean. Parking cost $15.00 for the day. The beach is a 15 to 20 minute walk from the park. Charcoal and gas grills allowed. A bit of a walk from the parking area to the picnic grounds. There are public restrooms and an ice cream shop nearby.

    The views are spectacular, love climbing on the big rocks, looking for sea glass on the beach. The bathrooms are kept clean and well stocked. One of my favorite places to visit!
