Once a British fort, now a tourist playground: picnic, fish, stroll and lounge while enjoying the spectacular view of Ely's Harbor.

There's no admission fee, the views are lovely, the park grounds are well kept, and there's plenty of wide open or shady places for a picnic. To see the "fort" area takes less than 30 minutes. A nice relaxing place.
