At the north end of the Historic Park, two overlooks command spectacular views of the George Washington Bridge, the Hudson River, and the skyline of upper Manhattan. Restrooms and a drinking fountain are available in season.

In the southern portion of the Historic Park, winding pathways lead past a reconstructed blockhouse to gun batteries and firing steps. Opposite the barbette battery, authentically recreated eighteenth-century soldiers and officers huts, with a well, woodshed, and baking oven, serve as the focal point for interpretive programs.
