Stage Fort Park BeachesThis Park is the historic site of Gloucester's first settlers in 1623. Dorchestermen set up fishing stages on this land.

The Park consists of Half Moon and Cressy's beaches. Half Moon is a lovely small beach ideal for families with children. Cressy's Beach is a rocky, more natural beach.

Stage Fort Park has an information center open during the season, rest rooms and on the grounds, a privately owned restaurant open to the public. There is a playground. Visitors can bring grills for cookouts. During the season, there are outdoor concerts and story telling. Check the Calendar of Events for details.

Love This Beach For My Family
I remember my Mom taking us here - we would play on the crescent beach while my Mom would sun herself up on the rocks - where she had a literal birds eye view of all three of us. Great place for a gathering, picnic, etc. The kids always love to play at the playground or explore the old fort surroundings when they have had enough of the beach. It certainly isn't the softest sand beach - but great for explorers.
