Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park
Come listen to the music of the seasonal festivals or take in the tranquil grounds of Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park overlooking the Christina River. It is an ideal location for both 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.
