About National Park, New Jersey
Sitting on the banks of the Delaware River south of Philadelphia, the land now known as the Borough of National Park was originally the site of a fort occupied by General Washington's troops, as well as the site of the Battle of Red Bank during the Revolutionary War. More than a century later, served as a retreat center for the Methodist Episcopal Church. Today, National Park (which is not affiliated with any national park) is home to about 3000 people, serving as a small-town suburb of the Greater Philadelphia area.
