Fort Phoenix

Fort Phoenix stands on a granite ledge overlooking Buzzard's Bay on the east side of New Bedford Harbor in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. It is a public park owned by the Town of Fairhaven and is open year round.

It is directly adjacent to the Fort Phoenix State Beach and Reservation, a public bathing beach operated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
