Fox Point State Park's Image

Unique history of Fox Point State Park includes the land that the park occupies when the Pennsylvania Railroad began filling in the bank of the river along its right-of-way to create additional industrial land. In 1958, S. Marston Fox began a battle to stop the filling process and turn the four-mile stretch of shoreline over to the people of Delaware. The park stands to remind citizens of Mr. Fox's visions and how they became a reality.
