Nice paved walk along the river. There is no shade along the walkway so I always plan my walks here according to the weather. Today was overcast and breezy which is perfect weather for this park even though it's 87 degrees.

This park has its pluses and minuses. Biggest minus is location - next to the highway and train tracks makes it noisy. Biggest plus is location - stretched right along the Delaware River. Very open with few trees. Major draw, for me, is that frequently big ships pass close by (cruise, container, tugs...) which makes it fun for kids. Also a good place to learn to bike ride as this is not a crowded spot. Yes, sort of a city/industrial location but a nice spot for a winter walk on a sunny day or when you want a change from a woodsy walk.

The trail is paved and in the open sun along the Delaware River. The park is squeezed in between the river, and the Amtrak Northeast Corridor. Both river traffic in the ship channel and rail traffic on the corridor are visible. On a clear day, both the Commodore Barry and Delaware Memorial Bridges are visible in the distance. I can't rate this trail more than a 2 because the howl of tires I-495, just beyond the rails overpowers any sounds of nature.
