“Lovely multiuse park on the river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

This is a pleasant park that fronts the river in New Castle. There are benches, shade trees and an 1832 small railroad ticket office. On the Delaware St. end on the river, there is a parking area which has spaces for about 12 cars. A lovely place is relax.

“Nice paved walk along the Delaware River”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

Nice playground that the children loved. Had picnic tables to sit at and watch the children. Seperation Day they have fireworks, though parking can be an issue.
