August 4 – Fort Bunker Hill Park (ONP #216)

The “fort” part of this park has definitely been taken over by the “park” part of this park. Indeed, the Civil War fortifications seem to have been swallowed back up into the ground by the woods and kudzu that have grown up over this site. So now, it’s just a solid city block of woods, with a few hiking trails that worm their way inside and around.
