Some people call this 0.2 acres patch of grass enclosed by a wrought iron fence and no entrance a park, but I think that’s a bit of a stretch. It sits at the corner of Broadway and Main, where Paul Revere rode by toward current day Medford on his famous ride to warn that the British were coming. It also marks the site of the Winter Hill Fort, which was a stronghold during the Revolutionary War and housed some prisoners of war. Click to view the writing on the stone marker:
A second marker in the park serves as a memorial to Anne-Adams Tufts, notable as a Revolutionary War heroine for her nursing services following the Battle of Bunker Hill.
