The park takes its name from the redoubt fort built by George Washington's troops in the fall of 1777, before heading to Valley Forge. The park is popular with hikers and bikers. Bird watchers enjoy the seasonal migration of raptors from the fully accessible observation deck.
Flourtown Day Use Area and Militia Hill Day Use Area provide over 300 picnic tables. Two pavilions are available for year-round use, weather conditions permitting.
The park lies between the towns of Fort Washington and Flourtown along the Bethlehem Pike.
