Bellevue State Park, located at 800 Carr Rd in Wilmington, Delaware, is a 328-acre state park that was once the estate of the DuPont family. The park is named after Bellevue Hall, the former mansion of William du Pont Jr., which stands as the park’s centerpiece.

The park is known for its beautiful surroundings and a variety of recreational activities. It features a 1-and-1/8-mile fitness track that circles a catch-and-release fishing pond stocked with bass, catfish, and sunfish. An exercise trail offers a refreshing workout, and hiking trails allow exploration of other parts of the estate. For cycling enthusiasts, both paved and unpaved paths provide a leisurely tour of the park.

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

The park’s historic charm is retained in the Bellevue Hall Mansion, once the home of William Du Pont, Jr. The mansion is surrounded by the DuPont’s collection of trees from around the world. Twelve additional structures that kept the estate self-sustaining can be spotted throughout the park, like the Percheron Barn that watches over the community gardens.
