Originally named Tatnall Street Playground in 1907, this park is located across the street from the home at 2311 Tatnall Street that singer-songwriter Bob Marley occupied with his mother in 1966. In order to raise funds to start his own record label in Jamaica, Marley assumed the alias “Donald Marley” and worked as a lab assistant at DuPont and on the assembly line at the nearby Chrysler plant, among other jobs. To honor Marley’s time in Delaware, the park was renamed “One Love Park” in 2014, taking its name from the singer’s hit 1977 song with The Wailers, “One Love/People Get Ready.”

Installed in 2015.


The Honorable Margaret Rose Henry, Delaware State Senate, 2015
