New Castle County plans to spend $7.7 million on the Glasgow Park.
They plan to upgrade historic buildings, improve its farmers market and build a petting zoo.
County Executive Tom Gordon also plans to build a state of the art library.
He told the Wilmington News Journal that it’s all part of his effort to spend the money where it will do the most good.
A developer wanted the land that is now the park for commercial development before the county purchased the land and its historic buildings for $15 million eleven years ago.
