Nice quiet place to reflect on US history. Open space and a few landmarks. But you should have in hand an information booklet or app to appreciate.

I went for the battle re-enactment and history tour at 6:45 AM, which is when the real battle started. It was a bitterly cold morning, and I just barely lasted for the whole thing. One of the Patriot re-enactors came all the way from San...More

Driving some back roads into Princeton and saw some cool buildings and signs. Decided to stop and walk around. It is pretty cool. I wouldn't go out of my way for this place, but its a nice stop for less than an hour.

We visited during our recent trip to NJ. It is a thoughtful place. We miss the Princeton Oak that perished in a lightening storm some years ago. We like the colonnade. The field where the new Princeton Oak is planted was in the movie IQ.

We grew up in the area but never really visited the park for the history. There isn't much to see and as other point out it is a place where locals go to picnic, sunbathe or walk the trails. There are a couple of historic...More

This might be a great park, but that's not what I'm rating. I stopped to see the battlefield. There's little here that supports what happened, mostly an open field. Nothing here compares to a battlefield like Monmouth. Worth stopping and seeing if you're an AmerRev...More
