Owner description: This fort played an important role in U.S. history starting during the Revolutionary War.

Bring a camera. From the overlook, you can get GREAT pictures of the Narrows, the Verrazano bridge, and the inside of the fort.
Fort Wadsworth was first used during the Revolutionary War, and one of the oldest military structures in the US

I've seen the fort from the Verrazano Bridge and decided to drop in to see if it would be worth while to take Scouts to. It appeared that theNational Park Visitor Center wasn't yet open to the public - soon I hope. And the information signs were not plentiful.

By April/May 2017 I hope it will be ready to visit and will be a neat place to take my kids for a hike.

This is a lovely park on the north shore of Staten Island , the park is closed at dusk and there are no lights but during the day the views of Manhattan and Verrazano bridge are amazing here. I took the staten island ferry and afterwards a bus line with the metrocard (15/20 minutes) just outside the ferry port.

Offers nice walking paths and great scenery. Has hills that may be steep for some people. Good points for taking pictures. Information stations offer a glimpse into history of the fort.
