We go kayaking here 1-2 times a month. This is the largest freshwater pond in Delaware. Easy boat launch that has its own separate entrance if you have your own. If you don’t, there is a kayak, paddle boat, and stand up paddle board rental area. I believe the kayaks are $9/hr or there is an all-day price. You can easily spend all day floating around. Bring some sandwiches for lunch and pull up on the beach for a break. Plenty of shady areas for some sun relief around the edges of the pond also.

This is a fantastic boardwalk-type trail through marshlands. We started at the Wilmington Riverfront. Plenty of parking and you can go as far as you’d like. If you’re riding bikes, you can ride south into New Castle along the River. Would be great to grab a beer in non-Covid times.

You can really get anything you’d like out of the multitude of trails here. Some steep paths if you’re looking for that. Or some leisurely walks alongside the river/creek if you’re into that sort of thing. Lots of shade for those hot summer days too.

Take this walk a few times a month after work or on the weekends. Short walk uphill to bars and restaurants in Trolley Square. Also could stop by the Brandywine Zoo while in the park.
