Friends of Wilmington Parks is dedicated to maintaining the beauty and enjoyment of the Wilmington State Parks system. Through programs, clean ups, plantings and restoration of historic monuments, we’re committed to keeping the parks enjoyable destinations for the community.

The Wilmington State Parks encompass five lush, urban parks along the Brandywine River in Delaware:

     Brandywine Park marvels with its beautiful views of the Brandywine River as well as historic monuments.

     H. Fletcher Brown Park provides a small oasis in the Wilmington business district.

     Rockford Park in Wilmington’s Highlands neighborhood has one of the most recognizable landmarks in the city, the Rockford Tower.

     Alapocas Run State Park, located between Augustine Cutoff and Route 141, encompasses 191 acres of woodland used by hikers, joggers and cyclists.

     Kentmere Parkway is a half-mile long green parkway connecting Brandywine and Rockford Parks.

Friends of Wilmington Parks is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1991 as a grass-roots organization of supporters who wanted to restore Brandywine Park to its original splendor.
