We visited the Wilmington Flower Market that is being held at Rockford Park. If you have the chance this weekend, you should definitely visit. Lots of activities for young and old- rides, food, games, things to buy and free shows. If you don't make it this year, mark your calendar for next year. Rockford Park is a beautiful park to... More

Lovely park minutes from downtown Wilmington. If you go on a Sunday, the dog park is busy with lots of great people and their furry friends.

Rockford park is a fun place to go. Whether you want to take your dog for a walk or go see Shakespeare in the park. They have nice trails and is located in a beautiful setting.

It's a nice park and the tower is pretty if you catch it the right part of the day, but Delaware has a lot of good parks and this isn't one to go out of your way for.

Just a park with a tower. Go there to relax but don't go there thinking that it's a tourist attraction.

We came on a night when there was a concert in the park and the tower was open. 132 steps were manageable even for our 3 year old. At the top there were great views of the surroundings. Also walked around the neighborhood to see some nice houses and landscaping. It was an enjoyable experience to visit on concert night... More

It's a park. Nice enough. But it's just a park. Some nice views, but really nothing special. Probably more fun to walk around the neighborhood and see how the 1% live in town.

The park is beautiful. A place where you can walk peacefully and listen to the breeze blow through the trees, ponder your life and grapple with whatever is on your mind. I've been going to this park since being a little kid, and it still provides a place to walk quietly and reflect.

I think that Rockford Tower has been romanticized in more paintings and photographs than any other structure in Wilmington. It is an icon, both literally and figuratively. I've been visiting Rockford Park for nearly 30 years but, ironically, the water tower was never open when I was there. Many renovations over the years account for part of the reason. This... More
