Originally built as a northern defensive battery during the Civil War, Battery Kemble Park is now a public park in the friendly Palisades neighborhood. Its 57 acres—filled with sprawling meadows, green woodlands and rolling hills—are popular among hikers, runners, dog-lovers and families alike. Bring a picnic basket and blanket for a day of frolicking and lounging in the meadow, or pull on your boots to explore the meandering trails along the babbling brooks. Either way, Battery Kemble Park is a perfect place to spend the day outdoors with your family.
