Alapocas Run State Park

Alapocas Run State Park features a variety of scenic areas as well as opportunities for recreation. This wooded park began with 123 acres deeded to the city in 1910, making it the last tract added to the Wilmington parks. By 1996 it had grown to 145 acres. Alapocas Run State Park, which is located off I-95 near the intersection of Concord Pike and Foulk Road, now features 191 acres of lush and scenic pathways, areas for hiking, rock climbing and paths for bike riding. It is home to the Blue Ball Barn, a once-abandoned dairy barn built by Alfred I. du Pont which is the permanent home of the Delaware Folk Art collection as well as an events space. It also features the Can-Do Playground, the first Boundless playground in Delaware, which gives children of all abilities the opportunity to play. There is always something happening in Alapocas Run State Park – from kids at play, to walkers, runners, bikers and rugby matches!
