Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park
About Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
As summer winds down and fall approaches, we begin to turn our attention toward various events that are just around the corner.
In October, our Historic Fort Taylor is transformed into Haunted Fort Taylor where folks experience spooky chills along with scary movies and a Vampire's Ball.
The Golden Age of Piracy comes to life at Fort Taylor through encampments, battles, and demonstrations during Pyrate Invasion in December.
For those wishing for a more relaxing experience, get back to nature as you enjoy a bike ride around the park or a stroll along the trail where you can see a variety of shore birds, hawks, swallows and warblers visiting us during their fall migration.
Ocean temperatures in the fall still offer enjoyable swimming and snorkeling, where colorful tropical fish can be seen just off shore.
As you can see, There are endless ways of having fun at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. We’ll see you here soon.
Fort Zachary Taylor is located at the end of Southard Street on Truman Annex in Key West.
