3 Reasons my Family Loves Red Bank Battlefield Park

  • Red Bank offers two different play areas for children. There is one for the little guys and another for the older crowd. All can have fun and parents can feel safe that children aren’t going on a play area that is too big for them.

 

  • You can walk right to the Delaware River. It was nice for the children to throw rocks into the river. They also enjoyed being able to find and collect seashells and play in the mud.

 

  • I enjoyed letting my children run on the long paths while I read each plaque that told a good deal about the history of Red Bank Battlefield Park.

    I’d like to know what the flag flying over te battlefield represents. The one with the blue stripes and white stars on a red field.

      That’s a very interesting question. Contact the folks at the park, they should be able to tell you. Then, let us know. Thanks – Jenn

    • Marla Marguglio-Welch says:

      Hi Jerry, the flag you are referring to is the Flag of Fort Mercer aka Red Bank Battlefield.
      You’re very observant..lol.
      I grew up in this tiny town, that at one time was as beautiful as its rich history.
      I tried posting a link but it’s not allowing me to paste, so for more info just Google, Fort Mercer Red Bank Battlefield Flag.
      Hope this helped
