A city jewel, Greenfield Park remains one of Wilmington's greenest and coolest destinations. The vast public space sits south of the historical downtown, on the west shore of Greenfield Lake and just a walk from the riverfront. The park offers plenty of room and scenery for kayakers, hikers, bird-watchers, and other nature lovers looking to take a break from the city.
