became a park. Thanks to the efforts of park stewards, the old dry moat that surrounded the fort have been converted into beautiful landscaped gardens. A trip to the fort offers panoramic views of Hamilton Harbor and the city. Artillery buffs will get off on the large cannons that still stand guard here, though they have never once been fired. People come here for a stroll or a picnic year around, but it becomes especially popular during Halloween Week, when there is a festival and a haunted house in the dungeons under the fort.

I definitely recommend taking a walk through the park, although there isn't very much to see. However, it is a gorgeous spot, out of the more crowded areas.

The former fort is now a lovely park with fantastic views of the entire island. Great for taking some nice photos. The highlight for us is the moat, which is now a trpical, botanical garden. Since it is about 30 feet below the level of the fort, it is much cooler and shady, a nice respite on a hot day.
