The park is tree lined and also has a small memorial to Albert Einstein and a wonderful small sculpture called Newspaper Reader. The monument is an impressively large homage to George Washington who led the rebels to victory in the... More

Interesting monument - beautiful open space so it shows well. We spent some time visiting the monument and walking about the images portrayed on it.

This is a very historically important monument, but is also something you can bring young children to. It features a large green perfect for playing with a ball, as many as the locals do. This is a place I will gladly return to. Besides just the monument, there is also a museum.

This is a nice monument within the town's edge. It is situated within a tiny park, with some benches and trees. It was particulary nice at night when illuminated!

It's a sculpture you can look at for a long time. There's a lot going on in it. It's lighted with colored light at night. Also, in Spring, it's surrounded by blossoming trees and three other, smaller sculptures

lots of different sights in and around Princeton. First tour the campus, if you like art visit the museum, see the town, then see what you have in the way of time. That said we are glad we visited here.

The monument is next to the municipal center. There is a walkway with the very large stone monument as well as some other plaques and smaller statues, and the bell from the USS Princeton. The monument is a large carving and makes a good picture. We were in town and thought we would pop by, otherwise we wouldn't make a... More

This is a cool monument that you have to stare at for a while to see all the details of. There are some other statues there too- two by Seward Johnson. At night the monument is lit up with different colors. It is nice to stroll down to the monument and look around when you're in town.

A lovely pastoral location on the outskirts of town. Not a lot of formal activities, but a lovely spot with excellent walking trails and open spaces for kids to run free.

We were in town for the Mid-Atlantic Regional Cup Soccer tournament and decided to visit Princeton University, Princeton restaurants and monuments.
