Situated atop Telegraph Hill, Fort Revere is one of the highest points on Hull's peninsula. It is anchored by the water tower, 56 feet from the ground to the observation deck, with a 360-degree view of the Massachusetts coastline from Cape Ann to Provincetown. Even standing at the base of the tower offers a panoramic view of Boston Harbor, Brewster Islands, Boston Light, and the Boston skyline.

That was when the amphitheaters were installed inside the batteries to accommodate the festivities being held in the park.
