“Love Battery Park!”

Great little park along the Delaware River. Has a great walking trail. Lots of benches to watch the water and playground for the kids. Check out the restored train ticket depot. Relax and Enjoy the view.

“Spring Walk along the Delaware River”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

Measured walking along the path. Currently construction is being done at the end of the park so you can only walk about half mile down and back.

“A nice walk along the Delaware river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2013

When you visit the City of New Castle, Delaware you have to take a stroll along the river front , the vistas are something to behold, on any given day you can see a Merchant vessel on it's way to Philadelphia or a Tug pulling or pushing a barge on it's way to one of the refineries on the river. I like to sit on one of the park benches and view the river and watch the Ducks and Geese swim back and forth. If you happen to be around in the summer, the park hosts a antique show with lots of dealers from up and down the east coast. I look forward to this show every summer.

“franksgogetter”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

it's just a park , the river is not that clean, there is no beach I never seen one unless they just put one in . they do have a big walking trail but do your waking in the day time so you can see around you. now the town is something too see, historic, some old places to see back as far as1860's( let's see if you can fine the under ground railroad ) ??
