Description

It’s hard to imagine a lush getaway, situated in the heart of Wilmington, near transportation and major roadways. But, once you discover it, you will return to this park again and again.

The innovative Can-Do Playground, the first Boundless Playgroundâ„¢ in Delaware gives children of all abilities a place to play together. Trails through fields and forest will take you to the rock-climbing area, nestled in one of the area’s most serene spots.

Along the way, you will pass the extraordinary Blue Ball Barn. The once-abandoned dairy barn built by Alfred I. du Pont has been transformed into a showcase that is the permanent home of the Delaware Folk Art collection. The Blue Ball Barn, progressive in its environmental design, is the perfect place to have your meeting, wedding or conference.

Alapocas Run State Park is located just off of I-95, near the intersection of Concord Pike and Foulk Road in Wilmington.

Open daily from 8 a.m. until sunset.

Entrance Fees

In-state: $4 Daily
Out-of-state: $8 Daily
