More Information about the Park
Fox Point is a “window on the river”. 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 where such a spectacular view is readily available.
The adaptive reuse of the land upon which this phase of Fox Point State Park has been developed is a singular achievement. Not only does the process of remediating a toxic waste site provide an important educational opportunity, but it also reminds us just how frail our natural resources can be. This window came too close to being locked and shuttered, perhaps forever.
Fox Point Statf Park provides front row seats for watching the river at work. With the shipping channel a scant hundred yards away, the view of the tugs and tankers will truly be up close and personal. In addition, the park features interpretive displays describing the functions of the various watercraft plying the river.
