A land occupied in the seventeenth century by the Lenni Lenape and Unami Indian tribes would become what we know today as Riverside Park and the surrounding areas of Delran, New Jersey. From then until now, Burlington County and the people living there have seen changes both large and small—from new bridges and new buildings to redistricting and redevelopment. But for many, one thing about “The Park” has never changed—it is home.

In A Walk in the Park, author and lifelong Delran resident Harold Klingler Sr. shares the history and the story of his home—Riverside Park, New Jersey. As much a tale of maintaining an identity in a constantly changing world as it is a fascinating historical look at the development of the city and its surrounding areas, A Walk in the Park offers snapshots of life in Burlington County from its earliest years to the tough years during the Great Depression and World War 2.

Take a walk through time and place—from the old grist mill and bridges over the Rancocas Creek to the homes, businesses, and lives on St. Mihiel Drive, Chester Avenue, and River Drive, to name just a few—and enjoy a personal and heartwarming history and narrative of life in The Park.
