4.7/5 based on 55 reviews on the web
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.

  • What?! $4 for Delaware resident and $8 for out of state?!!!! Who would want to pay this much to go to the park where it has barely nothing there. You can picnic anywhere and not have to pay to get in!😐
  • Really nice park there are lots of different play areas there is also a fishing pond, horse barn and walking trails. I haven't even explored every part of it. There are some nice buildings to take pictures too.
  • Great place for families. There's a a few playground areas, a pond for fishing, hayrides and a track to run on. There are pavilions that can be rented out for parties. And a amphitheater that in the summer provides a free concerts. It's $4 for in state residents and $8 for out of state visitors.
  • very nice birthday gazebos for rental. Only catch is the lack of bathrooms nearby. Nice friendly staff, helpful.
