Right on the Delaware River, has a nice trail for walking/running/ biking. It's nice walking along the river. There have been some recent upgrades - new benches and upgraded the paving on the trail. There's some shady spots, a decent amount of parking, and its pretty safe, as evidenced by the many solos and families taking advantage of the property.... More

Battery Park has always been a nice place to take a stroll. I like to go down on the morning when the sun is low on the water, it makes for a cool, picturesque walk. I have found however that if you go during the evening, there are Pokémon chasers everywhere that totally ruin the vibe so pick your visit... More

It is a lovely place to enjoy the day with a stroll along the Delaware River. There are benches if you wish to stop and view the river, Also, it is next to Olde New Castle if you need a change of pace.

Nice place to go for a walk/run or take the kids to the park. I went here as a kid and now I take my kids. Very clean and family friendly.

Weather you are looking for a scenic walking tail, a historic city to browse and a place to take the kids to play in the playground, its an awesome area.

What a beautiful place to walk and see all the historical homes, lovely shops and restaurants. A beautiful place to see and enjoy! There is much history and enchantment in this pretty little town. We love coming here to walk, have something to eat, enjoy the shops and just spend time together. We are looking forward to a visit again... More

My husband and I went to Battery Park just to take a walk! It was very nice. But do bring bug spray due to green head flies that bite. The extended path takes you down a path along the river. Very pretty

This park is good for everyone including people with pets. Nice area near the water. If you want you can just sit out there and relax. Bring some snacks and just sit on the bench by the water. You must keep on your let on a leash.

I was excited to take my kids today, and unfortunately, there was little to nothing to do for my kids. Perhaps it was the hot day, but the "beach" that was described had trash on it and was not accessible. I will admit that other people seemed to enjoy themselves.

Battery park is the place to go for a peaceful, relaxing time and enjoy the sunny skies, the water and the various species of wild life. My wife loves this place, we discovered it while I was working in DE. Paved walking path right by the river, beautiful views, children's playground. Occasionally you will catch a vessel going up the... More
