I 95 exit 6 Proceed to the MARYLAND Ave./Martin Luther King Blvd. Turn RIGHT onto M.L.K. Blvd. Stay in the RIGHT-MOST lane. From MLK BLVD, turn RIGHT onto S. ORANGE ST and left onto WATER STREET. The Riverfront Park is located on Water Street between Market and French Streets across from the Train Station.

Come listen to the music at a concert or festival or take in the tranquil grounds of Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park overlooking the Christina River. It is an ideal location for 5K runs/walks, recreation and relaxation. So when the music stops and the crowds return home, the simple gardens and graceful park benches offer visitors a quiet retreat.

The Park was named for Thomas Garrett who lived in Wilmington’s nearby Quaker Hill neighborhood, where slaves traveling the Underground Railroad often found refuge, and for fellow abolitionist Harriet Tubman. Today it serves as a place for celebration and festivals for Riverfront visitors.
