What a wonderful path to decompress from life's riguors. Waterview seems to take your troubles away with the tide.

The park runs for couple of miles along the waterfront. There are a number of places to sit and also a paved path for walking or bicycling. It is very close to the historic area of New Castle.

There is some on street parking. There is also a few other parking lots in the area. If youre not familiar with the area, you might want to google it prior to visiting

No swimming there anymore. Used to be a long time ago. Too much debris floating in the water and it's not very clean.
