About this Location

Second only to Mount Agamenticus, the tower atop Garrison Hill is the best place to take in the entire seacoast region. Thanks to volunteers, this popular Dover attraction has been fully restored. Scarcely visible from the road, this tower is Dover’s secret jewel. Visitors seek out this Dover landmark.

Resources: Picnic area, sledding, and snowboarding in winter
Rules: Carry out your own trash,
Dogs: On leash in the park, but not up the tower.
Hours: Park closed 9:30 pm to 7 am from April 1 to Sept 30. Closed 7 pm to 7 am from October 1 to March 31.
