Another gorgeous park in town on the water is Crocker Park. This and Fort Sewall are beautiful any time of the year. There's a great dock for jumping off of in the summer. Fun for all ages; spectacular views!

The fort itself is small but interesting. The views from the top are lovely. It is worth a quick stop. As with everything in Marblehead, the parking is extremely limited.

History and incredible scenery rolled into one. A must see when visiting Marblehead. I love coming here to witness the sunrise with Marblehead Neck and the lighthouse in the background but it is delightful any time of day. Plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the surrounding views. Be sure to bring your camera or you will regret it.

We enjoyed our drive here. The fall colors were wonderful. Great views of the coast. Lot of colorful boats and houses. I imagine in summer is quiet lovely as well.

A great place to spend some hours on a sunny day. The view is phenomenal - the ocean, the boats, the seagulls. One can sit or walk around . it is an easy and nice walk. Mostly recommended.
