    Battery Park is a beautiful place. It has a walking trail, picnic tables, playground equipment, and a lovely pier. There are lots of park benches to look out at the Delaware River or just get some sun...  more »

    I grew up coming here and have seen the changes over the years, as few as they have been they were necessary. I now live within walking distance and enjoy bringing my family here. I'm happy to live by the water. There is so much to do here. Especially in the spring and summer!! I can't think up even one negative thing!

    Wonderful park we started going every weekend because our kids love it! to bad there's so many assholes smoking in every part of the park! Its like they see you with your kids and say Oh look! little kids there.. Let smoke right next to them. Went yesterday and the park was empty. Its was great until a couple went right where we were sat right next to our kids and starting smoking.. You would think the park being so BIG and empty at the time they would go else where but NO they go right where the kids are..

    Nice views of the Delaware River/bay. Well paved walking path, large playground. Lots of nice trees provide shade. Great for a picnic.

    In the summer heat, the breeze from the water cools you down some. Currently lots of Pokéstops if you play Pokemon Go. Dog friendly, my dog liked staring down the multiple squirles. There's a kids play park and the pier has been finished. It looks like they plan on adding more things to the park so I look forwards to seeing the changes. Downside? Parking sometimes sucks.

    Beautiful park in a great location. Worth not only seeing the portion near the wharf but also taking the walk south of the boat ramp. Great spot for pokémon go.
