Pack a Picnic and Head to Bellevue State Park in Wilmington

With warm weather just around the corner, it’s time to start taking note of all the local recreation hubs and outdoor spaces in and around Wilmington. Bellevue State Park is one of the best, with miles of trails and open spaces for all sorts of fun warm-weather activities.

For runners, there is a jogging track that spans just over a mile and encircles a fishing pond. For equestrians, there are more than three miles of trails for riding through picturesque views away from the ring. For those not into trekking through the woods, there are tennis courts, an arts center, grassy areas for picnicking, and, of course, the historic Bellevue Hall Mansion. Special events are frequently held at Bellevue State Park, too, from guided walking tours to concert series.
