Robinson Park is named after DuPont's first Mayor, Harry L. Robinson. Part of the DuPont Historical Museum complex, the park hosts several events run by the DuPont Historical Society or the City of DuPont. On site is the historic Dynamite Train which used to transport goods from the DuPont PowderWorks Plant down what is now the Sequalitchew Creek Trail to the past DuPont Wharf. 

During Mayor Robinson's term which ran from 1951-1967, the land by the museum, then the towns city hall, was a large ditch that had railroad tracks going around it. When construction began on I-5 in the late 50s, excess dirt from the construction was used to fill the ditch, creating the park. The park was maintained by the towns Garden Club who planted many of the plants that are there today including the ginkgo trees. The gazebo in the park is named after another former mayor, Pola Andre, who always wanted a gazebo in the center of the village.
Just to the northwest of the park is the trail head for the JJ Historical Village Trail which goes north to Bell Hill Community Park with access to many other trails within the DuPont Trails System
