The park is huge, but you only need an hour or so in the visitor center. The displays and movie are very interesting and well done. Loved the end of the movie!

Nice place to visit. Just wish they had more walking trails that didn’t involve huge hills. I have a mild breathing problem but love to walk. I avoid this park for that reason. Historically they give some insight but could do more

This is where Washington and his troops fought the Battle of Monmouth. Molly Pitcher brought water to the soldiers here. Besides the history, this park is a lovely place to have a picnic, walk, ride a bike, or just relax.
