An emotional memorial with some history and names of all deceased fisherman from Gloucester. Convenient on wharf. A must see!

This is a beautiful memorial to those who sail the seas. The memorial itself is a beautiful waterfront promenade which is lovely to walk. The statues are beautiful and the views are very nice.

If you get a nice day walk around and see the statues. Walk down to the beach and go to the Fort Park.

Along the side of the street. As you enter Glouster center, there is a parking lot but it is usually full, but along the street is parking with meters.
