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

People will venture here just to lay in the grass. It is a massive park, but you'll always find the locals here playing catch, sunbathing, or even flying a kite. It is an iconic part of the Princeton Culture.

The spacious grounds and small museum help to provide a good feel for the important historic events that took place on or near this site during the American Revolution. The multiple walking trails through the adjacent woods are another plus.

The lawns of the Park is reasonably well maintained. Reading through the details at Clark House made the 250 years of Princeton's pride come alive, particularly those paintings. Overall, this is an important agenda during Princeton tour. The Colonnade is majestic!
