  • If you are into history this is a nice visit. The staff does a good job explaining the conditions at the time of revolutionary war and how the entire series of events went down. The park is slightly run down and could use some money for maintenance and upgrade of facilities. Dogs are allowed outside, but need to be on leashes. Restrooms are available in the park, along with several play grounds. The parks hosts a number of arts and craft fairs, re-in-actors, Scout campouts etc throughout the year. Free Parking is available and generally good when events are not running. The park also has the Canal path along one edge so this is an easy way to access that. There is not a lot of forest in the area, so animals and birds have been scarce.
  • Great park with well maintained grounds and impressive visitors center. There are two revolutionary war cannon on display in the exhibit in addition to displays on the soldier's equipment and period furniture. I would have given the park five stars but the older "gentleman" working at the gift shop was snarky with my wife when she asked some questions about the visitor's center and he was extremely rude to others in the gift shop. Other than that, my family and I really enjoyed spending a couple hours exploring the park. A word of warning: the bridge to the New Jersey side is very narrow. Drive slowly and fold in your rearview mirrors. My passenger side mirror was nearly ripped off. The New Jersey side is not part of this park but is worth exploring for the historic value. However, it is really bad shape with overgrown bushes and grass. Not much to see other than some plaques and a ferry boat display.
  • If you've never visited this important historical site, make sure that you do! Learn about, or dust off your grade school history lessons, about the important battle of Trenton, launched from this area on Christmas Eve 1776. Since returning to the area after several years in another part of the country, I've been pleasantly surprised to find Washington Crossing Historic Park regaining, what appears to be, the funding it requires to keep up the grounds and facilities.
  • Revealing the facts of United States past events is never avoided when traveling. Books are His story of events. Being there and imagining the struggles in real time holds the heart strings, 4ever. We arrived at closing, but a local Dad gave us a mental tour to look for on our own. Great enthusiasm!
  • This was a wonderful experience since dogs were allowed in the park and a young man in period costume walked around with us telling us all about the crossing.
