Improvements will include new masonry and paving features, irrigation systems, upgraded lights and electrical system, lighted fountains, planters, benches and tables, trees, shrubs, green areas and improved public access.

“This is an investment in the center of Wilmington to revitalize Rodney Square, attract new jobs and business to our city, and give all Wilmington families more options to get outside and enjoy everything our city has to offer” said Governor Carney at the press conference and ground breaking ceremony.
