Pleasant walk along the Delaware. Popular with locals many out on sunny day with their dogs and children. Limited parking so be prepared to walk down from the town proper.

Battery park is a cute little area on the water. It's quiet and peaceful, has a walking trail, playground, and benches to just sit & watch the water. Lots of squirrels running around.
