Gloucester’s Visitor Welcoming Center is located at historic Stage Fort Park on Hough Avenue in Gloucester. The Building houses hundreds of brochures, rack cards, maps and guides for the visitor to learn and discover all that Gloucester has to offer. Open seasonally from Memorial Day in late- May until Columbus Day in mid-October. We encourage visitors to check us out even throughout the Fall and Winter months due to the beautiful surroundings of the area. Take a walk around the park, there are beaches, a children’s playground and picnic areas. In the warmer months, concerts, events and our local farmer’s market set up camp here.
