About This Project

The Northern Delaware Greenway links Bellevue State Park and Brandywine Park and the City of Wilmington through a series of trails that travel some of the most beautiful landscapes in Delaware.

Travelers walk by two historic estates, Bellevue Hall and Rockwood Mansion, and are a stones throw from Nemours Mansion & Gardens.  They walk along the Brandywine River, past the Brandywine Zoo, and are offered views of dramatic rock faces and waterfalls.  The trail winds through the Piedmont area for Northern DE including Alapocas Run State Park, Rockwood County Park to Bellevue State Park/Caufield (overlooking the Delaware River).  [The connection to Fox Point State Park has not yet been made.]

The trail links to important local and regional destinations…parks, historic sites, corporate business centers, schools, museums, and tourist attractions.
