Came for the sunrise so I can't speak much about the park itself. Beautiful spot by the river to catch a sunrise though

I really enjoy going here with my husband and 3 small children (3, 5, and 8) It’s great for many things. Seeing fish, turtles, snakes, frogs and ducks by the hatcheries. Children can fish there too! There is also a very nice and clean newer playground with a swing for special needs children along with regular size and baby sized. Plenty of seating and some tables/benches for picnics. It’s also very nice to see the River up close and walk along side it on the trail. Plenty of parking and the ice cream man is usually always there for those hot days. I would recommend to anyone.

This park has been here for a long time, but it is well maintained. There are 4 ponds, which are very overgrown and need some love, but there are many things for kids to do. It always seems to be busy when I've gone here. 😊

We discovered this park in far NE Philly through a Love your Park Scavenger Hunt. It is worth the trip! Aside from stunning views of the Delaware River, there's a fish hatchery area that encourages novice fishermen to practice catch and release. The original historic hatchery building from 1914 is closed but still stands. The park is dog friendly, has a large, new playground, a boat launch and the biggest parking lot I've seen for a Philly park anywhere. We look forward to visiting again in the summer.
