The City and Main Street have obtained approvals and permits to start construction on an important phase of the “Castle Trail on the C&D Canal”. The Trail has made great progress on the portions between St. Georges to Summit Marina. This next phase extends the Promenade behind Kathyʼs Crab House and continues to the C&D Canal, completing the trail portion to Battery Park. Birding Observation Platforms and birding boxes will be installed during this construction phase as well as the restoration of the African Union Cemetery. When completed the Castle Trail will extend 15 miles along the C&D Canal and connect Delaware City Battery Park to Chesapeake City, Maryland. The trail will include walking, hiking, bicycling and equestrian trails with parking and access at several points along the trail. Waterfront Delaware City is excited to add this project to its long term strategy of a Destination Hub of Eco Tourism. More to come on the Castle Trail!
