One of Delaware's hidden gems when it comes to state parks. Live music during the summer, play area for kids close to pavilions and band stand. A triple A tier Disc Golf course. Running and hiking trails, horse trails and great historic lands.

A beautiful place to visit, particularly on a Wednesday night. Set up your lawn chair and let the breeze cool you as you listen to the sounds of the various bands. Food trucks are on site in case you get hungry.

Wonderful wooded areas and meadows too are found here so the number of birds is amazing. The hiking areas never seem crowded and wild flowers are abundant.
