This park was very nice with a statue of Harriet Tubman and Garret Harrison along with a brief explanation. This park borders the river and is close to river market if you want to grab a drink or a bite on the river as well

We only saw the park during a Race Expo, so it was filled with expo tents. Still, it seemed like a beautiful place, right next to the river.

This is a nice park to get out and stretch and learn more about the history of Wilmington and the Underground Railroad. Beware of your surroundings as there are sometimes unsavory types here,but in general no one bothers anyone.

Great walk! Kids had an ice cream along the Riverwalk and we stopped for dinner. Very clean and well maintained trail for a family stroll.

Wilmington was very much involved in the Underground Railroad and as you stroll along the Riverwalk you'll find stations with descriptions of aspects of this 19th century movement, here led by Tubman and Garrett, to bring slaves from the south to freedom in the north....More

Nothing there but a few benches and sidewalks. You can walk next to the muddy Christina river but that is about it. Try another park. Sometimes homeless people approach you for money.
