A History of Delaware's Parks and Gardens
by Paul Bauernschmidt
Delaware's Parks and Gardens is a look at the First State's legacy of outdoor recreation and leisure. Chronicled here are sites that many of us know today, but with a view of them as they were in a bygone era. There are also places that just aren't there anymore. Visit the ghosts of Wilmington's Brandywine Springs Park and Lorewood Grove along the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal.
You will be able to take a look at Fort Delaware State Park before its million dollar restoration. Fort Miles is seen as the State is busily restoring this last line of defense that protected the industrial centers of Wilmington and Philadelphia during World War II. Today we know this fort as Cape Henlopen State Park. Watch as this treasured Atlantic coast area transforms from military to leisure use.
Delaware's Parks and Gardens captures the images of places that Delawareans spent much of their free time.2007, soft cover, 6" X 9", illustrated, 160 pages
