Park Information

Rich in modern recreational facilities and historical significance, Fort Washington blossoms with flowering dogwood in the spring.

Fort Washington State Park consists of 493 acres in eastern Montgomery County. It takes its name from the temporary fort built by George Washington’s troops in the fall of 1777, before heading to Valley Forge.

The park is popular with hikers and picnickers. Birders enjoy the seasonal migration of raptors from the Observation Deck.
