Fort Scaur was built in the 1870's in fear that the United States would attack the Royal Naval Dockyard. US troops would eventually be stationed here, but as allies during World War II.


Fort Scaur is today part of a park that visitors can explore and walk around. With plenty of picnic tables, open green space, and the interesting cannons, barracks, and bunkers, the area is a great place to spend some time or to have a picnic.
