Picture of Bellevue State Park

BELLEVUE STATE PARK


About the Park

Bellevue Hall 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. Mansion tours are offered periodically, detailing how Mr. du Pont transformed the mansion from a Gothic Revival castle into a replica of President James Madison's home, Montpelier. The park was acquired by the State of Delaware in 1976.

Outdoor Recreation

A 1-and-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.

Bellevue Tennis Center features eight clay courts and offers a number of tennis programs, both instructional and social, as well as tennis lessons and racquet-stringing. Bellevue is also home to Wellspring Farm, a modern equestrian facility with indoor and outdoor arenas offering private and group riding lessons, boarding and therapeutic riding.

Weddings, Meetings and Special Events

Bellevue State Park is home to several venues available for weddings, celebrations and gatherings of all types. Bellevue Hall provides elegant indoor settings for receptions and corporate functions, while the mansion's grounds and gardens are the perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding. Cauffiel House offers a grand country home experience, with period bedrooms offering overnight accommodations for up to six guests.
