Welcome to Fort DuPont
Fort DuPont is a lifestyle-based community designed around the water and great outdoors. A place where bicycling, boating, walking, hiking, and birding are the norm and not the exception.
The American Birding Association chose Delaware City because of its location in the heart of one of the best birding locations in the country. Many species can be seen at the fort including Bald Eagles, Great White Heron, Blue Heron, Black & Yellow Crown Night Heron, Osprey, Wild Turkeys, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Hawks, and more.
Waterfront living at its finest
Fort DuPont is not a subdivision
Our districts form a cutting-edge community on the waterfront of the Delaware River.
The Branch Canal and Marina districts focus on the old canal and the Delaware River to the north and east; Officers Row provides the link between the two.
During the Army days, the parade ground was central to life on the post. The wide open space is a second focus for the Fort DuPont community. The Arts, Battlement Square, and Barracks districts front what will be an expansive town green.
