Bellevue Hall mansion 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. The park was acquired by the State of Delaware in 1976 and opened to the public in 1977.

The Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation has retained the historic charm of Bellevue while providing many opportunities for recreation. Walking and jogging are popular activities at any time of the year. A 1-1/8 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.

  • It’s a beautiful park. People do gardening here with a dedicated space. Full of green vegetables 🥬. There are plenty of space for different activities like fishing, trekking, hiking etc. this park is kid friendly with picnic tables and playgrounds. There is a stable with some beautiful mighty horses 🐎. Overall it’s a great place for spending time!
  • Wonderful break from the rest of the world. Well taken care of, good signage to find what you're looking for within the park. Beautiful disc golf course with great upkeep. Plenty of great picnic tables and great walking trails.
