Fort Taber Park is the City of New Bedford's newest park, and one of its largest. Located on Clark's Point at New Bedford's southern-most tip, this 47-acre park offers something for everyone. The park features important historical landmarks, as the site's former use as a military reservation dates back to the American Revolution. The park's proximity to the sea on all three sides offers visitors sweeping views of Buzzards Bay and the Elizabeth Islands. Stereo binoculars mounted along the paved walk/bike paths allow visitors the opportunity to view close-up the 270-degree panorama of the city's outer harbor, Clark's Cove, Buzzards Bay, and the myriad fishing vessels inbound and outbound from New Bedford, America's #1 top dollar commercial fishing port.
