Small little tower that sits atop a hill so that you get one of the most BEAUTIFUL views of the area. Boats in Scargo pond below can be seen, as well as ocean boats a little further out.

A must do if you are anywhere near Dennis at dusk, it’s free and a great way to spend time during the setting sun. Not a large park but there is free parking. Tip: come early to get a parking spot and a viewing place...More

You can see from Plymouth go Provincetown. Great local find. Some steep steps - so perhaps not appropriate for those who have difficulty walking/climbing.

Sorry but I don't know. It was May when I was there which would be to early for blueberries. I will say that there was still a lot of wild growth around the tower.
