Not when raining
Jan 2021
Enjoyed our walk here. Overall trails are well marked, though there were a few that were either unmarked or not on the map. I do hope they update those soon. Can be a bit muddy so don't go after a recent rain. Appreciated that they had garbage cans throughout the park.

Unusual little park
Dec 2018
There is a trail around the lake that can be nice for a walk if you don't run into people smoking weed and drinking. The park is mostly a nature preserve. The remains of a large cement staircase are in the woods, back from the Victorian era when there was an amusement park boardwalk here called White City Amusement Park. The trolley, long gone, would bring tourists in for the day. "in its heyday, the park boasted a roller coaster, carousel, and scenic railway, among the other rides. They had a Katzenjammer Castle, Mystic Maze, movie theater and other attractions. There was a dancehall with bands playing along the midway. White City’s water flume ride had gondolas that descended from the park above, down the cliffs on concrete chutes and into the lake. There were boating and fishing on the lake, then known as White City Lake. In the winter, people used the frozen lake to ice-skate."

Wonderful, unexpectly peaceful place in an urban setting
Apr 2017 • Family
This place has been on my list to come check out since it is set in a very urban area, yet was said to be quite diverse, and tranquil. We walked the Spring Lake trail around the lake and saw 2 otters, fish, 8 types of birds, plenty of squirrels, a beaver dam and turtles. There were benches along once side of the lake for people to relax in the shade, and we saw a few people fishing. There are picnic tables in a couple of areas to enjoy a snake or lunch. The whole loop I think was like 2 miles, flat, great, and cleared. This was a great nature walk and we stopped over at the Tulpehaking Nature Center as well. Nature center had some really nice information on the rich Lenape Indian history of the area. Cost is free for both the marshlands and the nature center.

Great walks by the Delaware River

Nice trails by the Delaware River, and not far from the Trenton urban area. Entrance is near high power lines, though (picture)

Awesome Walking Trails, Excellent Birding, Great Migrations
Apr 2015 • Friends
Turning left down the hill at the end of Sewell Avenue, you'll enter the Abbott Marshlands (aka Roebling Memorial Park) in honor of the Roeblings who were pioneers in wire for bridges, the Brooklyn Bridge in particular. A wonderful lake and a tidal marsh reveal a variety of botanical delights and wildlife. Known as a special "stop over" for migrating birds. Today's walk yielded 33 bird species including Harrier Hawks, Swans, Yellow Rumfouses, Grebe, Rusty Blackbirds, Woodpeckers, Wood Ducks, and many more. You can bring your kayak and paddle through the water. Loads of beavers (and their dams) reveal themselves at sunset. Great spot for young ones to fish, I think you need a license. So bring your binoculars and set out on a leisurely stroll. Be sure to stay on the walking paths and brind out what you bring in! It's a treasure worth preserving. And you might want to check out the nearby Tulpehaking Nature Center.
