Wilmington State Park is a state park located in Wilmington, Delaware. The park is open year-round and covers approximately 345 acres of land, mostly situated along the Brandywine Creek. The state park is made up of a group of smaller parks that are administratively managed as a single unit.

The park consists of four smaller parks. Three of them are along the Brandywine and are connected to one another: Brandywine Park, Rockford Park, and H. Fletcher Brown Park. The fourth, the Hobbs Tract, is located about four miles away in Greenville.

Brandywine Park is the oldest of Wilmington’s parks, having first been established in 1886 after prominent industrialist and conservationist William Poole Bancroft convinced the Delaware legislature to create a Board of Park Commissioners. The park is approximately 178 acres and it spans both the north and south banks of the Brandywine.

Admission to the parks is free, with the exception of admittance to the zoo. The park offers a variety of recreational activities such as hiking, picnicking, and bird watching. It also hosts a number of statues, monuments, and memorials, including war memorials as well as statues and memorials to historically significant Wilmingtonians
