While certain portions of Wilmington State Parks are owned by the City of Wilmington, Delaware State Park rules and regulations apply to all areas.
Pets are welcome in the parks as long as they are on a leash and under the control of their owner. Please clean up after your pet.
Three areas within Wilmington State Parks are managed as "off leash" areas for dogs. Two are located in Brandywine Park and one in Rockford Park. Dogs must be on a leash until reaching the boundaries of the off-leash area. Rules are posted in each area. Please contact the park office at (302) 577-7020 for more information.
A plastic bag dispenser is available at locations where the "Carry-In Carry-Out" policy is in effect. Please help keep the parks clean.
