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.
