The town is very nice also. Nice walkway right on the edge of the river. There was an old Sail ship on the new pier.

Nice, open, free. No garbage. Great hot mix walkway. It's always nic to see owners walking their dogs or children playing in the park. The waterway back drop is soothing as well. It's nice to walk off lunch after dining at Jesop's Pub.

My suggestion is to grab an ice cream at Jessop's Tavern and take it down to walk along the river. It's a very relaxing walk with plenty of benches. Also a great playground if you have children.

There are swings and a slide which may be too young for a 10 y/o. It's along the Del. River so you can see boats from small sailboats to large freighters. It's a good place to see ducks, geese, & other birds if that's of... More
