Bellevue State Park

800 Carr Road
Wilmington, DE 19809

Bellevue Hall mansion commands a grand view of this historic estate, and its present form reflects alterations made by William du Pont, Jr. Mr. du Pont surrounded his home with the finest facilities: tennis courts, equestrian stables, gardens, and a picturesque pond, amid woodlands and fields overlooking the Delaware River. The park was acquired by the State of Delaware in 1976.

The Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation has retained the historic charm of Bellevue while providing many opportunities for recreation. Walking and jogging are popular activities at any time of the year. A 1-1/8 mile fitness track circles a catch-and-release fishing pond stocked with bass, catfish, and sunfish, while the nearby exercise trail offers a refreshing workout. Hiking trails allow you to explore other parts of the estate. If you prefer cycling, both paved and unpaved paths lead you on a leisurely tour.

Recreational activities are first-rate, with a variety of programs for visitors of all ages. Summer theme camps entertain and educate children. From June through August, enjoy evening concerts and performances at the Bandshell. Hayrides (by reservation) are fun in the fall. Outdoor ice skating is also allowed, conditions permitting. Bellevue is truly a park for all seasons.
