Fort Taber Park was named for the original earthen fort that stood on Clark’s Point. During the American Civil War, it was built to protect New Bedford from 1861 to 1863 until Fort Rodman was completed enough to become the city's primary defense.

Inside the park is short but there is a bike path that goes along the water alongside the Acushnet River if you head to the right as you exit Ft Taber and along Clark's Cove to the left. The right leads to the harbor walk where you can continue up and onto the Hurricane Barrier and a shallow wade will allow you to visit Palmer's Island. The 'Cove' trip will also lead to a walk along the hurricane barrier on that end. There are restaurants and an antique shop in the old mill if you head that way. Bring bike locks just in case.
