  • Gorgeous place! We loved sitting by the water. It is so peaceful. A perfect place if you want to go for a long walk, let the kids play or just simply sit down and take it all in.
  • I travel through Delaware all the time and somehow never heard of this place. This is a pleasant little park to visit in a well maintained historic town. There was a antique show going on when i went. There are a few little shops and cafes to visit nearby. Very scenic and right off the highway.
