    Absolutely love this place. The fort itself looks like what it would have appeared around the Revolutionary war. Climb the spire that commemorates the battle fought here where many Patriots gave their lives. The views towards the submarine yard are wonderful as well.

    Small park with a monument. Nice for an early morning or evening walk with friends and family. Independence day fireworks can be viewed from here which is great!

    Beautiful, panoramic views of New London, and the Thames River. The battle ground is also very interesting to walk around. So much has been preserved here. Definitely one of the best battlegrounds in the area.
