    Wilmington Train Station is a very nice clean station and easy to navigate because the two tracks are just North and South. The city transformed the place to make it an eye pleasing place for both inside and outside and with plenty of nice parking garage for commenters. In addition, the city has transformed the surrounding areas into nice park and river walk. Passengers can walk around the River and the park while waiting for the trains. It is also a few minutes walk to the historic downtown Wilmington with lots of shopping places and restaurants.

    I really enjoyed the Blue Coats game. It's a rather small arena and feels like a large high school gymnasium. All the fans were sitting on one side if the arena, with the other set of bleachers retracted. The views from the seats are great. Walking to the seat you get very close to the floor. The Blue Coats mimic the Philadelphia 76ers, with similar sound effects and games. Parking is free but the lot I parked in filled up. Also there was only one concession stand for the whole arena, and the options were somewhat limited.

    I would urge readers to disregard some of the older posts for Rodney Square, as the entire block has recently received major improvements that took over 2 years to complete!
    Since the early 20th century, Rodney Square has been considered the center of Delaware’s largest city, and until recently was surrounded by some of the most significant cultural and civic institutions: the court house, the public library, the post office, and the Hotel DuPont. The square was also a transportation hub, serving as the transfer point for all buses going through Wilmington. Fortunately there is a new transit center, and there are no longer bus stops at the square.
    The complete overhaul of the park portion of Rodney Square was completed this past summer, and it looks terrific. There is all new grass, landscaping, and attractive hardscaping, which includes a ground-level fountain. Although there are pocket parks throughout center city, Rodney Square is once again the primary green space, and is a welcoming spot for residents, downtown workers, and visitors.
    It’s also the home to festivals, concerts, farmers’ markets, and community events, and often is the best spot to watch a parade!
    As a native Delawarean, I continue to be saddened by the removal of the statue of the eponymous Caesar Rodney, one of the most recognizable symbols of our state. While I recognize the reasons it was removed in 2020, I am hopeful for intelligent and informed dialogue about the sculpture’s possible return to its inscribed stone base, which remains at the top of the square.

    Train passes by this bridge and caught our attention so we went by and drove through. It was a fun thing to do in the area.

    We stop in this park about once a year while at St. Anthony's Italian Festival since it is adjacent to the church. The kids always want to play on the playground. This year the swings were messed up. Some were broken. The wooden playground was OK. Kids could still play on the slides there. Several of the swinging rings were missing on it though. Park sign is all scratched up. There was trash thrown about. Place just seems like it needs lots of repairs. So sad to see this piece of green space in the city that is there for the children just falling apart.
