Although each of the parks in the Delaware State Park system has its own unique features, Fox Point State Park deserves something more than “unique” in its description. Perhaps the best word is “extraordinary.”
A Window on the River
For more than 20 years, the dream of a park on this ribbon of land along the Delaware River has been a source of inspiration as well as frustration for the neighboring communities, now collectively known as Fox Point. One man’s vision of a “window on the river” became a rallying point for many northern Delawareans. It is an extraordinary event when dreams turn into reality.
And what a window it is! You can stand at any of the park’s new overlooks and see all the way to Philadelphia looking north and well beyond the Delaware Memorial Bridge looking south. There just aren’t that many easily accessible places in Delaware where such a spectacular view is readily available.
But great vistas aren’t the only attraction of Fox Point State Park. There are a number of wonderful educational opportunities as well.
