Great walking trail along the scenic river. Many wonderful rest stops along the way for wonderful views of the river. Wednesday evenings are great fun with live entertainment on the battery during the summer. All are in easy walking distance of the quaint shops, pubs and restaurants within Old New Castle.

If you are in to Pokémon this is a great place to go. There must have been 60 people playing in the park. Family friendly park and a street... More

A wonderful place for a walk, near downtown Wilmington. Escape from the city environment and go to a nice walking area, near the Delaware river. Great colonial downtown area near walkway.

The walking path along Battery Park is fantastic. There are scenic views of the water all along the path. There are also swings and slides for the kids to play on. It is very peaceful there.

My family and I have visited Battery Park many times over the years since we live minutes away. We have taken frisbees and footballs with us, purchased ice cream at nearby shoppes and eaten at local restaurants. It is a lovely place to walk and just "hang out". Parking can be sketchy during the summer but parking along a side... More

What a beautiful "throw back" in time; a working historical town. A wonderful place to walk and admire the homes and historical sites. Jessop's Tavern and Nora Lees are great restaurants. Penn's Place is fantastic for coffee, breakfast. The town is full of friendly folks.

A friend and I recently stumbled upon Battery Park after dining at one of the restaurants in historic New Castle. We decided to go for a walk around the park as a way of burning off calories after a great meal. It was a nice place to walk and we enjoyed some people watching. The trails provide nice, quaint views... More
