Located right in the heart of downtown Wilmington, Rodney Square is smack dab in the middle of the best the city has to offer, including restaurants, shopping, nightlife, museums, and more. They’re also less than a mile away from three of our favorite local parks, so whether you’re looking for outdoor activity or just a leisurely afternoon under the sun, we’ve got you covered.

Cool Spring Park

Centered around a reservoir, this quiet park is great for leisurely strolls or an afternoon picnic. You’ll even spot some wildlife that calls the modest-sized space home. Children can let loose running around in the lower section of the park, where you’ll find an assortment of playground equipment, like swings and slides. And be sure to stop by on Thursday evenings during the summer months. That’s when the park comes alive with an explosion of activity, thanks to a farmer’s market that oftentimes includes live music and other family-fun activities.

Brandywine Creek Greenway

Part of a bigger initiative that includes the preservation of more than 36,000 acres of protected open space, the heart of this initiative is the Brandywine Creek and Brandywine Park. All together you’ll find nearly 70 miles of winding trails and walkways, making it the perfect destination for anyone looking for outdoor activity, whether it’s walking, running, or biking.

Fletcher Brown Park

Just across the water from Brandywine Park, you’ll find this cozy patch of green space. Come here for the lack of crowds and calming views of Brandywine Creek, as well as the historic millrace, which helps to supply a fair amount of the city’s water supply. Art aficionados will also recognize a selection of sculptures scattered throughout that were crafted by former resident artist Charles Parks.
