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

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.

Beautiful grounds surround this battlefield. There period artifacts to see and explore. The whole area has buildings and other places nearby to explore. Washington's Crossing State Park is across the Delaware River in Pennsylvania a short drive away. These both connect the battles in that...More

So, this was awesome. We drive past the Princeton Battlefield all the time and always said we wanted to stop and walk around. One day we finally got to and it is so much more than the two fields you see on either side of...More
