  • Bring your bike and ride up the canal, or just wander the paths. See where Washington crossed the Delaware with his troops. Some of the buildings Washington used still stand. 
  • Imagining standing in the room President George Washington, General at the time) stood the night before he crossed the Delaware preparing to take Trenton. He was a brilliant General and the park has a...  read more »
  • I loved our visit to the park. It was just unbelievable to be somewhere so historically important. The museum was beautiful, the price was reasonable, and our tour guide was very informative. 
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Nice, large, scenic & historic. It closes early so unless you just want to walk or ride bike, get there early in day & take a tour. This is a quick stop not an all day attraction, or add on to Bowmans, New Hope sites, shops & eateries/bars or quiet break away from Sesame Place.
  • (Note - this is for the New Jersey side of the park) Nice park with great hiking trails. You can spend a few hours wandering in the woods around the park or turn it to a full day affair by crossing from here to Bald Pate mountain, to the north. Very lightly used during the week, making this a hidden gem where you can clear your head and enjoy nature.
  • This was actually a lot of fun. It was my infant's first "historic outing." The staff was very nice and it was interesting taking a tour of the old buildings. Only drawback is the path was covered in goose poop and it got in the stroller wheels.
