Fort Foster Park

FEMA RESTORATION WORK: The Kittery Public Works Department has completed restoration work on the trails within the park.

PIER REPAIRS: The Kittery Public Works Department will begin repair work on the pier.  This work will temporarily restrict access to the pier.

CLOSED FOR THE SEASON: The park is now closed to vehicular traffic until the first weekend in May.  The gate is locked.  Pedestrian traffic is allowed inside the park from sunrise to sunset.    

SEASON AND HOURS OF OPERATION: Fort Foster is open on weekends (Saturday & Sunday) in May and September.  It opens every day of the week between and including Memorial Day and Labor Day. The park opens at 10:00 am and closes at 8:00 pm or dusk (whichever comes first). Closing times are posted at the gate.  The in-bound gate closes to vehicles 30 minutes prior to the posted park closing time. 

The visiting public is strongly encouraged to remain within the confines of the park.  Violators may be prosecuted for trespassing on private property.

SEASON PASS INFORMATION: Be sure to purchase your season pass prior to visiting Fort Foster. All residents must purchase their passes at the Kittery Town Hall.  Non-residents can also purchase their passes at Town Hall or can purchase them at the gatehouse. Remember, the Town Hall is closed on Fridays.

Kittery residents are reminded that their transfer station (a.k.a. "dump") sticker allows them to park at Seapoint.  It does not allow entry into Fort Foster.  These stickers are not linked to the vehicle's re-registration date either.  Please acquire your stickers before visiting the beach and park.  Vehicles and walkers without the current Fort Foster season pass will be charged an entry fee. See "Daily & Season Pass Fees" link for fee schedule.
