City officials announce plans for new park project in Seaford
SEAFORD, Del. – City of Seaford officials announced new construction for a park they say will serve as a reminder of the long history of the Nanticoke River on Friday.
According to the mayor, David Genshaw, the City of Seaford is working hand-in-hand with the Chesapeake Conservancy to create a park right along the river.
Genshaw said the new park will be built where a historical Oyster House was once located.
The area is also expected to have an exhibit building dedicated to industrial history in the First State.
According to Genshaw, the new park will be connected with the city’s riverwalk creating more opportunities for economic growth.
“With the announcement of the Oyster House and what’s going to happen downtown along the river, we really see a resurgence in our downtown and an opportunity of tremendous possibilities of investment, economic development, recreation and everything that is on the upside,” said Genshaw.
City officials also said that the area has been purchased by the Chesapeake Conservancy and is in its planning phase.
