Rockford Park has much to offer the visitor, including ball fields, tennis courts, hiking trails, picnic areas with grills and a large off-leash area for “man’s best friend.”
A highlight of the spring season is the annual Wilmington Flower Market. This popular tradition is held every Mother’s Day weekend, Thursday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The Monday evening Wilmington State Parks’ Summer Concert Series is held on Monday evenings at 6:30 and always draws large crowds.
The park affords year-round opportunities for family activities, even in the winter. At the first sign of snow, youngsters of all ages grab their sleds and snow boards in hopes of being the first to “hit the slopes” of Rockford Park.
