    Nice place for a walk (with or without dog on leash) or a run. Nearly tackled once by Jill Biden's security team, but otherwise a good place.  more »

    This is one seriously cool tower! Can't believe I've lived here my whole life and never visited the tower. It looks like something medieval with huge blue rock stones and large ornate door. At first you think there's a very unique clock on the side until you realize it's a huge sundial! Look way up at the top. Yes, those are little gargoyles! The surrounding area has great hiking hills dotted with little caves between huge boulders, massive and dramatic trees and a beautiful park surrounded by old immaculately kept mansions. can't wait to go back when it's open and see the inside

    Went to the stargazing event at Rockford Tower and it was really nice. The lights of Wilmington were beautiful and the moon looked close. It was a bit of a climb and we had to wait until people came down but they had hot cocoa which made it bearable
