Watch the ships and trains go by and soak in the sights of the Delaware River.

Fox Point State Park is located on the banks of the Delaware River in northeastern Delaware. See the local trains and ships passing by as you walk along the Riverview Trail. Keep an eye out for butterflies and birds in the meadow too. You may also be able to see bald eagles flying overhead since they often nest and fish on the river. If you walk far enough, you'll be able to walk across the Commodore Barry, and Delaware Memorial bridges too. There are horseshoe pits and a volleyball court within the park. Little ones will also be entertained at the playground and sandbox, located near the picnic area. 

This area used to be a dumpsite but was turned over to the county in the 1970s to help make it into a recreational area. S. Marston Fox was the person who fought for this piece of land to be turned into a park where families could enjoy the sights of the river and the natural beauty of the area. Today, this state park stands as a testament to the resilience of nature. You can visit anytime from 8 am to sunset. A cash-only entrance fee is required if you visit between March 1 and November 30. Bring a picnic lunch with you and enjoy spending time with friends and family at Fox Point State Park.
