This a fun park a short drive from the center of Princeton. There is a playground and a large sandbox for the kids as well as walking paths and rare trees. A nice respite and a quiet retreat.

A lovely oasis for walking solo, posing for wedding photos, or enjoying a picnic with friends. The park is open and beautiful any season of the year.

This is a fabulous park to bring your kids. Two pieces of play equipment, big sandbox area with trucks and toys, and walking paths. The area is protected by the shade of tall trees. I haven't explored the walking paths, but from what I read...More

This little park is just off of 206/Stockton. Great for small children and it has a little playground and a small parking lot. Nice to walk around, jog or bring a picnic.

This park is very tranquil and not far from downtown Princeton. There is lots of open space as well as trails to trek with some beautiful trees. Very nice scenery.
