I pass by this lovely green grass daily and once I saw an enactment of a battle with men dressed up in their soldier garb with guns as an educational experience for children and adults. There are swings for little tots in the park too.

Well, it is a monument to the Battle of Princeton. Nice park like setting. Stop by if you have time, but not worth a special trip.

This is a monument to celebrate the victory of General Washington over the British in 1776. It’s dry imposing and of historical interest. Worth a brief visit when you are in Princeton.
