“Serene Park in Old New Castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Battery park overlooks the Delaware River. It is a great place to take a stroll or just sit and watch the boats go by. The surrounding area is home to some historic homes which are open to the public. Great palce to unwind after a stressful day at work.

“Love, love, love this park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Great walking along the Delaware Rive in old Colonial New Castle. The place is great just before sunset with the cool river breezes.

Very nice park on the Delaware river in Old New Castle Delaware. Great for walkers or joggers with a beautiful view over looking the river.

“Nice walking path...beautiful vie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Want to look across a across a river and see another state. Want to watch cargo ships squeeze under the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Want to just take a relaxing stroll or set up an easel and paint a picture. Take the kids on the swings, have a picnic. A quiet and relaxed place most days, but if you want something more check the calendar as they are home to several great events. {art, antiques, concerts, and Separation Day} to name a few. Have a pet -they can enjoy the park too.

“Beautiful View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

I like to go to this park because it is very relaxing and has a beautiful view. Reminds me of Battery Park in New York except you can't see the Statue of Liberty.
