“Free parking is the best feature”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Unless you are headed to fort Delaware there is almost no reason to visit. Free parking feature and the proximity of large ships make the sight seeing cheap. Quiet little city with the opportunity to be developed into a great place to visit. I,ll wait until that happens before I return.

“You can see Fort Delaware from Battery Park”
Reviewed 20 October 2012

Great way to spend an afternoon. Pack a lunch and enjoy the view. You can walk on paved paths or sit and watch the world go by. Lots of resident birds and super-friendly squirrels. Bathrooms are a wee bit gross.

“Small but nice”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

The park may not be a big draw but if you look beyond it you will see some very historic and unique shops. It is also the gateway to the ferry to Historic Fort Delaware.From time to time there are special events at the park and when there are the whole town usually joins in. It is small but the view is grand. Worth a stop if your in the area.

“Nice place to walk”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

Nice paved path along the water. Always see birds along the trail. Bathrooms are the only downside - dark and dingy.
