Gorgeous Sunset!

Whether you're going to excersise, or maybe you just wanna go for a walk, or even just sit on a bench and watch the sunset. Battery Park is amazing!

This is a big park with a sidewalk along the water. On street parking and plenty of grass area for kids to play.

Once you drive through old town, there is this beautiful park. Do yourself a favor and get takeout from a local restaurant (i like Portofino as it is close) and enjoy your lunch break or picnic. The combination of the river, and old town make for a pleasant stay.

Apparently this park is a prime spot for Pokemon Go players. If you enjoy walking through a mediocre park while dodging hundreds of people walking with their faces glued to their phones or iPads have fun. Also, I think they had to abbreviate the park hours because of the Pokemon Situation - Same applies to all of downtown too.

I have fond memories of Battery Park from my childhood, having experienced fireworks out over the Delaware river. The newer paved and extended walking path makes for a long enough walking trail to be useful for exercise. There are play areas for kids, and a couple of basketball courts. The park is not large enough for any sports fields to... More

Pleasant walk along the Delaware. Popular with locals many out on sunny day with their dogs and children. Limited parking so be prepared to walk down from the town proper.

After a meal at Jessop's Tavern we took a walk along the waterfront. There is presently construction going on as they are replacing a pier but the walkway along the shoreline is still open as is the grassy area of the park. Many people were enjoying a nice stroll and picnics in the good weather. It is a carry in/carry... More

Battery park is a cute little area on the water. It's quiet and peaceful, has a walking trail, playground, and benches to just sit & watch the water. Lots of squirrels running around.

Its quite, scenic and has a nice walking path. I would recommend anyone visiting Delaware to stop by and take a walk .... More
