Wilmington State Parks
Find recreation, history, education, and sports and community events right in the heart of Wilmington. Visitors experience nature and recreation in the heart of the city through Wilmington State Parks, an urban retreat along the Brandywine River that has fostered family memories and traditions for generations.
While walking the river’s edge in Brandywine Park, adjacent to the Josephine Fountain, Brandywine Zoo, Swinging Bridge, and Jasper Crane Rose Garden, it is easy to see the development of Wilmington State Parks as the recreational hub for the city of Wilmington.
A drive along Wilmington’s iconic streets provides a view of the cultural history preserved in Wilmington State Parks including the Sugar Bowl, H. Fletcher Brown Park, Rockford Park, and numerous memorials and sculptures throughout the city.
