Explore rolling meadows, and beautiful nature preserves at one of Delaware's top state parks.
Brandywine Creek State Park is located in northern Delaware. Two nature preserves within the park offer opportunities for wildlife observation. The Tulip Tree Woods Nature Preserve has the shortest trail (0.8-miles) and is just east of the nature center building. For a longer hike (2.9-miles), try the Brandywine Trail, which can be accessed via the Rockland Parking Lot in the southeast end of the park across the creek. Near the beginning of the Brandywine Trail, you can stop and watch the birds in the Freshwater Marsh Nature Preserve.
This lovely park is open daily from 8 am to sunset. You can begin at the nature center for trail maps and visitor information. The nature center is open from April to October from 8 am to 4 pm every day and from Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm during the off-season. Entrance fees are required for all guests. This is a great place to picnic and enjoy spending time in nature with friends and family.
