Cressy’s Beach


Located on the lower side of historic Stage Fort Park, Cressy’s Beach is a rocky beach with a breathtaking view of Gloucester Harbor. Families and couples spend countless hours during the summer enjoying cookouts, picnics and playing Frisbee on the park’s wide open lawns. Dogs are allowed in the park but are prohibited on the beach. Restrooms are located within the park as well as at a privately owned restaurant located adjacent to the park. Parking is available at Stage Fort Park at a rate of $10 per vehicle weekdays and $15 on the weekends and holidays. Alcohol is prohibited.

Directions: Take Exit 14 off Route 128 North. At the bottom of the ramp, bear right onto Route 133 toward Gloucester. Follow to the end with the Harbor in front of you. Bear right onto Western Avenue (Route 127) and then take an immediate left on Hough Avenue into Stage Fort Park.
