Neshaminy State Park - River Walk Professional Review and Guide
"Neshaminy State Park’s 339 acres offer a glimpse into a unique ecosystem. The park is along the banks of the Delaware River, which is tidal up to Trenton, forming a freshwater estuary. The park is a popular summertime destination because it has a pool, picnic areas, boating and fishing access, and hiking trails.
The hike takes you first along the banks of the Delaware River and through a tidal marsh area. The second part of the walk is a bit more woodsy and offers good opportunities for bird-watching. The park features great amenities, including a public swimming pool."
--Lori Litchman, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Philadelphia - 2nd Edition (Menasha Ridge Press).
Neshaminy State Park can make you buzzy for around two hours if you like to walk next to the river. Once you get there make sure you choose the longer trail it is more interesting than walking next to the picnic tables that can be found next to the parking. If you are lucky you can encounter otters at the end of the park on the left.
