Google cadwalader park and you will see what it once was. The park is now a mess. The area is wrought with crime. If you have been here don't depress yourself. If you never have been, don't bother. Hopefully it will return to its glory...More

Located in a once beautiful part of the city. The area is now dirty and dangerous. There is no reason to go there. Stay away.

I'm a shame that the capital doesn't have a park that highlight what the garden state has to offer. The animals are no longer and even the swing set are in non-workable condition. The old deer pen has a sign that says,"it's wet lands" but...More

A nice walking park but lacking scenery. What was once a grand park has seen better days, but you can always get a nice work out with a few laps around the park. There is also an art museum where you can reminisce over the...More
