Our first time to this park. Would never guess a place so beautiful would be tucked away hidden in a big, crazy, not so nice city. You have to admit it, the actual city of Wilmington is not so beautiful or a place you want...More

Myself and fiancee would go here all the time for the last like 9 or so years. We have a 2 year old now who also loves to go! Its beautiful and for the most part I have never run into anyone mean or unfriendly.

If you've never been rafting or canoeing on the Brandywine river, you must try it. It a wonderful and relaxing time, fun for the whole family. Best done when it hasn't rained in a week or more to ensure lower water levels and slower currents....More

Nice park along the river, with wonderful big rocks for climbing. Can get crowded, but especially beautiful in spring.

This was the highlight of our overnight trip to what seemed like a struggling city center. We were simply checking out the River from a downtown hotel and ran into it. I would have enjoyed spending more time there. The layout of the park, its...More

We had a couple of hours while in the city and followed TripAdvisor to this park. Brandywine Park is long and narrow, encompassing both sides of the stream. There are intermittent bridges, providing flexibility as to the distance you chose to walk. It is relatively...More
