This was my first time climbing the tower. Had attended the flower market for years and played baseball in front of it, but finally got the opportunity to climb the steps to the top. Great view and it is FREE!!!

Parking was packed. Appreciated the shuttle pick up and drop off from the outer parking areas. The casino staff were there without being intrusive. The food court was a bit pricey if you had to pay cash. Getting the point card really was a plus. Will return.

It's another small park with a wonderful historic tower offering great views. Conveniently located at the border of Wilmington and the suburbs, it's a charming hamlet for all who cross through. It just isn't that good.

I was Wilmington for work and this park was next to the place I was staying. Just a nice place to take a walk on grass. Relaxing. The tower sits up on top of a hill and overlooks all of wilmington. After some exploring, I found a trail that led down to the river. It's not DisneyWorld, just a cool... More

This park at the edge of Wilmington's western city limits is a popular place for walking - people and dogs. Facilities for tennis, softball, basketball, and relaxing picnics. Some of the city's largest and more stately houses - all over 100 years old - face the park. A green serene atmosphere.
