“Peaceful, historical family time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Great place to relax while children can run and play. Educational for whole family. Fun place to shop for out of the ordinary gifts and great little restaurants/taverns.

“love the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Enjoyed watching the ship row by on the Delaware river. The pathway that goes around the park was really nice and peaceful as we walked and listen to the calming effect of the water.

“Traditional city park with lovely riverside setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

A large, open park created from an old industrial area in historic New Castle. The walkway along the river is now damaged from Hurricane Sandy but still fun. You have a good chance of seeing cargo ships and tankers on their way to Wilmington or Philadelphia as well as geese and gulls and, at low tide, the remnants of old piers. Lots of special events during spring, summer, and fall, including weekly summer concerts.

“Great place for a run”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

The views are nice and the paths well lit and traveled so you do not have to be fearful. There is even a park to take children to. Hurricane sandy did some damage so it will be interesting to see recovery edforts

“A great weekend walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

It was a beautiful day, the weather was great. We took a tour of one of the historic houses, which was just the right length, stopped for coffee and shopped a little; what could be better?
