    Lots of choices for walking paths. Great for kids and adults. Plenty of playground activities. Dogs allowed while on a leash and free bags for feces disposal.
    Water available in some areas for dogs as well.

    I visited because there are parts of this area that have recently become part of the NPS's First State NHP. The visitor center houses the Passport Stamp. The staff at the visitor center was helpful and the area was beautiful.

    First time to this beautiful park and pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to do a 2 mile walk from the visitor center to the creek. The trail is a little steep but it is paved the whole way, wide and very shady for the longest portion of the trail. It was a hot day but it did not feel so on the trail. Did not see many birds but may have had a lifer sighting of a couple of Broad-winged Hawks.

    Fox Point is an unusual state park and an unusual bit of land. These four acres were a Superfund site - that became the passion project of a local citizen who urged these few polluted acres be repurposed and become a riverside park. The industrial waste was covered with plastic, the plastic was covered with dirt, grass was planted, picnic benches and a playground were added.
    There’s also a walking path - you can walk it or stand on it for the incredible view of the Delaware River that it offers - look across to New Jersey, look left and right to see two of the massive bridges that span this wide river - and look around to see families picnicking -
    There are no foxes at Fox Point - and there is Noise from I- 95 - but this small park gives you a great view of a large river -
