I was excited to take my kids today, and unfortunately, there was little to nothing to do for my kids. Perhaps it was the hot day, but the "beach" that was described had trash on it and was not accessible. I will admit that other people seemed to enjoy themselves.

Great walking trail along the scenic river. Many wonderful rest stops along the way for wonderful views of the river. Wednesday evenings are great fun with live entertainment on the battery during the summer. All are in easy walking distance of the quaint shops, pubs and restaurants within Old New Castle.

If you are in to Pokémon this is a great place to go. There must have been 60 people playing in the park. Family friendly park and a street... More

A wonderful place for a walk, near downtown Wilmington. Escape from the city environment and go to a nice walking area, near the Delaware river. Great colonial downtown area near walkway.

The walking path along Battery Park is fantastic. There are scenic views of the water all along the path. There are also swings and slides for the kids to play on. It is very peaceful there.
