New castle county has invested a lot of resources over the past 10 years to make this park one of the best in northern DE (opinion). It has a skate park, several playgrounds, one of which is for toddlers, a pet park, and a 2+ mile paved path. Ample parking and constant groundskeeping make this an every day park. The... More

This park is nice. I only suggest more parking and another entrance, maybe on 896 side. The new flea market adds to activities to do. The water fall area is nice but it's affecting certain areas that is starting to look like Marsh land.

The Glasgow Park is a very nice area to spend some outdoor time. The park includes walking and biking trails, a pavilion, a skate park and workout sites. Great area for enjoying nature and getting some exercise, too.

Took a day off work to spend with my pseudo grandson who is autistic. I'd read about the park and had wanted to take him. What a fantastic place! There are several different playground areas located next to one another. Large structures with lots and lots to do on each one. Then there is the fenced off area that is... More

There are mileage markers along the course. It is a busy place with plenty of parking. The park also has tennis and basketball courts, dog park and... More

Wonderful public use of this beautiful piece of property. Something in this park for everyone. Walking, biking, strolling paths. Great playgrounds for children of all ages. Dog park. Seasonal farmers market. Special events. Facilities available for organized picnics. Probably much more you can learn about on webpage.
