Fort Point Lighthouse is a must-see when visiting Liverpool. It's beautiful in the summer with its magnificent shrubbery and many beds of roses. It's a nice walk around the circular walkway. There are several benches to relax on and just view the Atlantic Ocean. Coffin Island lighthouse can be seen in a distance. At times, sailboats may be seen passing... More

Found it to be a restful spot. Nice view! Bit of local history to read about and just a little stroll from the town's Main St.

The Lighthouse is very nice, you can climb to the top , but surprised they charged fees to get in, it is worth to take a look!

This tiny lighthouse gives visitors the oppourtunity to envision life as a lighthouse keeper. A small park with washrooms,a gift shop and some historical information about privateering and shipbuilding in the area. This would be a fun place to visit with children that are older than 5 years of age as the steps to the top crows nest are very... More

So fun for the kids to climb to the top and to sound the manual fog horn. Very good interpretive information and friendly staff. All was made even better by the picnic we had delivered from Lane's. What a cool service!

A nice park with an unusual lighthouse at the end. It's not particularly big and there is the offer of sounding thr fog horn. But was done in 5 minutes. Visit, but don't expect much.

We were in Liverpool for lunch and then stopped in the visitor booth where we found out about this lighthouse. It was a cute and easy to find. It was Monday so the little shop attached to it was closed. We didn't know you could go inside the lighthouse but maybe that's because the shop was closed that day. Took... More

Canada's oldest lighthouse, run by the town for past few decades, at the end of a point of land. 20 minute walk from downtown. Very relaxing place to sit, watch boats go by and birds.
