The Park is located on the water next to the Holiday Inn Express in Essington and tells the story of early Swedish settlers in the Delaware Valley. I first heard of the Swedish connection to the area while doing a Hop-on, Hop-off tour in Philadelphia when the guide described the four figures under the statue of William Penn at City Hall as two native Indians and two Swedes, the first white settlers in the region. This piqued my interest so when I found myself in Essington some days later at Governor Printz Park, I was excited to see and read about the settlement.
The plaques show this location as the capital of New Sweden in the mid-1600's, lead by Johan Printz. This Swedish settlement was around for about a decade before the Dutch moved in and absorbed it into their New Netherland string of settlements.
There are replica log cabins, many placards, and a statue that tells the story. It is worth a half-hour visit if ever in the area (which is very near the Philadelphia Int'l Airport.

We very much enjoy walking Governor Printz park .There is a nice walkway around the park. There are signs with interesting historical facts on them. There is a play park section for children. Gazebos and picnic tables ,BenchesTo sit on facing the river.the best part has to be the view of the river.The worst part is the Geese leave their droppings all over the place.I highly Recommend Governor Printz Park just watch your step.

We took the Grandchildren and had a picnic. We also walked down to the river and enjoyed the view. Beautiful renovation!

The park was beautiful. So much work has been done. People definitely need to stop by and check out the updates to it.

The community was very nasty and was not welcoming with some of the comments. Little kids having fun should not be subject to what we heard. Almost like we were a private gated community without the gates. I have been coming to this park over 50 years. Longer then some that have lived here, very sad to see.

I was a year-round daily visitor to the park before the renovations began. I've been there twice since they renovated it. Before the renovation it was a touch of nature in the midst of concrete jungle. Now it's just more of the same - over-developed. If you want a quiet place to enjoy interacting with the environment, this is no longer the place. Now busloads of kids arrive to run and scream all day long. The equipment is down for maintenance often, because none of the new park visitors have any respect for the millions of dollars the township and Swedish historical society spent on the renovation. I don't even want to consider the volume of water wasted by the Splash Pad each day. A lot of effort went into completely altering something that only needed minor polishing. Don't expect the locals to be as open and friendly as they used to be; they're mostly pretty upset about the kind of audience the renovated park has drawn.

This is an old space that has been beautifully repurposed. Recent renovations of the waterfront recreational park will be officially unveiled June 1 2019 it includes a splash pad, four gazebos, two playgrounds, bocce courts, horseshoe pits, a band shell. There is plenty for the entire family to do. There are nicely crafted stone steps that lead to the edge of The Delaware River. It’s near the marina where you can take out your boat or waterski. Next to the park is a Holiday Inn Express. This location is approximately 15 minutes from the Philadelphia International Airport and very close to I95.

Looks like this will be a really nice park when finished but today it is a wet muddy mess. The two play areas are really nice and fenced so the young ones will not wander off. The paths have the history of Swedish settlers of the Delaware valley and there are multiple beautiful gazebos that will be great for picnics in warmer weather. There is also a large fire pit that will be terrific on the cooler nights to have wiener roasts and s'mores parties!!
