Nice big park where u can walk and sight see

Jerzy Wlock

Always a beautiful place to walk, ride bikes, sit and enjoy food and/or hold events. There is free parking along the river near Brandywine Zoo and there is always spaces available. Bring your dog and/or small kids and enjoy the paved walking oath that has plenty of shade. I highly recommend everybody to enjoy this park.

Jennifer Cuffy

Love the zoo there and flowers... walking through the park is Beautiful..

Joyce Williams

I love this part it have improved in the years I've been going to this part since 12 years old

Andrew Klein

This place is beautiful and great for the outdoor inclined. They have tons of hiking trails and the scenery is amazing. I once did a 5 mile hike here and I was not disappointed. The trails are clearly marked and easy to follow. They also have a disc golf area! If you are wanting to get outside in Delaware, this is a great spot.

Joshua Stippick

It is a cute though small zoo with some really adorable animals. The keepers are nice and knowledgeable. The shows are humorous and well thought out. Overall the only thing holding it back is the smaller size but they do as much as they can with what they have. If you're in the area and have $7 it is definitely worth coming for a couple of hours.

Debra Martin

Come see the kangaroos, alligators and other summer guests before they head for winter quarters. The new goat pen is spacious and beautiful, and has a diverse group of goats ready to play. The veteran inhabitants were out this morning enjoying the cool temps. Expect a new lemur exhibit in 2020! It's not big or flashy, but the historic riverine park setting is delightful.

Benjamin Louden

beautiful park. some of my favorite walks have taken place in this park.

Demarcus Taylor

I love this park, I've spent a lot of time at it and even trained for cross country. It's a very big park with lots to see and you can have a picnic there.

Wynita Forman

The zoo is a waste of money and rather boring for kids over 6 years old.But to walk near the water is beautiful.

Jacqueline Davis

Too hot to walk but will come back again.

Terese L Hawkins

Great place to stroll, reflect, take the family and have lunch.

jessica lester

Beautiful spot on nice day to relax.

Jennie Hardy

The Brandywine Arts festival has an impressive display of local artists showcasing their talents. Beautiful hand crafted jewelry, clothing, woodworking, and eclectic art pieces. Various food vendors as well. Grab an extra bag of kettle corn to bring home. It's a festival staple.

Karam Albanna

It’s the worst zoo I ever been to, the number of the employees are way more than the animals, I just feel bad for the few animals are in there.

Vaibhav Ranjan

It was a good to visit there and see cherry blossoming

Monique Stokes

Beautiful trees, always neat and clean. BBQ grills are permited.


Actually were able to see all animals. Park was clean and the staff were friendly


Really great place if you want to walk, relax or brush up on your photography skills. I've been going here since I was 3 yrs old and always had great memories of the Brandywine Zoo and feeding the ducks. Delaware's own smaller version of Central Park.

Michelle Argue

Nicoe Poteat

Love is very relaxing an good food

Nicoleetgrdtrsrstdrgczsascxdffcvxgfffrtff Crone

Stopped on our way to OC . Great place to spend an hour and to get some energy out of the kids only a few minutes off route !

Katrina Midgette

Its nice to reconnect with nature. This is definitely the place to go for hikes or a stroll. If you have a dog there is ample places to go with your furry friends!

Eric Kennedy

Nice place to walk around and relax, take in sights, etc. I enjoy the sound of the river. It's a shame to see the amount of trash we did but that's not the parks fault. The zoo is a nice touch for the area but keep in mind it's small, nothing too exciting there. The park is a nice surprise in such a built-up area. You're just steps from center city and houses but it doesn't feel like it when you're in the park.

Paul Butler

Great riverside park right next to the tiny Brandywine Zoo. Worth the day trip with the kids. We checked out the Delaware Childrens museum afterwards but you could easily check out multiple cultural attractions nearby.

Kirby Rodgers

Great place to walk your dogs a great place for family and friends

Cara Birch

Small zop great for small kids. Wish there were more exhibits though

Tanaya Green

Pretty nice and simple. Nothing big but it has different things on the the play ground

Judy Chavanne

Very pretty and peaceful ducks swans herons great for dogs that like water next to nice small zoo

Matthew Deutsch

Super-chill well cared for animals, super-chill staff.

Casira Copes

The highlight of Brandywine is definitely the amount of trails and paths to choose from if you're a jogger, dog-walker, etc. They're not always clearly marked, but it's not too difficult to find your way. The park also covers such a huge area that it doesn't feel crowded, but it's also not empty. There's a jungle gym for children as well. Overall, it's a nice area to walk around on a lazy day~

Renee Jewell

Love this park. Used to come here with my mom.

l Ca

Paved trails are really nice and short enough to take younger children through. We brought our 4 year old and an umbrella stroller to push up the inclines. 4yo loved the rock walls, Bancroft mills and small waterfall. There are a few pretty good inclines throughout.

Malikah Mortise

Very Nice

Robert Speace

Nice park,views along river.walking trails

Bishop G E Gordon Sr.

Nice place

Heather Manning

Brandywine Park is beautiful. It's an escape from the city inside the city. It is kid and pet friendly, and there is lots to do!

Joseph Blake

Great walking park. Beautiful Brandywine River and a canal sandwiches a short, but pleasnt path beneath bridges and towering sycamores.

Ele Espinosa

Beautiful scenery. The river is hypnotic.

Karen Gustafson

We went to the brandywine zoo, not the park. The zoo was great, most of the animals were out and visible. Good trip!

Staci Bourland

Small but so is cost. Love the wildness of this zoo. Very rustic. Staff has been super friendly. Petting zoo is nice too. Lively, small zoo. Perfect for small kids!!

Danielle Frazier

Small Zoo but great for toddlers..

Leshanta Thornton

Great place to take a leisurely stroll or get a brisk walk or jog in. The scenery is beautiful especially in spring with the cherry blossom tree. The best time to go is early in the morning when it quiet and peaceful. It can get crowded on nice days but not to the point where its annoying. They offer a nice zoo in the park that has very reasonable price.

carol latney

We had a great time in the park

Rob Gwatidzo

Lovely park for a stroll or run

Echo Wu

It was a lovely park with trees and water. The walk along the river calms the soul.

Samantha Smith

This is a very beautiful, relaxing park! It has many walking trails with plenty of spots to rest and take in the view. I go here often just to relax! The kids enjoy the sights too but we didn't find a play area or anything. It didn't take away from the fun they had watching the swans and ducks play.

ashley may farina

Took the road bike, those hills are not joke!! I need more training lol beautiful with all the cherry blossoms in bloom. I had never been before.

Yolanda Miles

Love the serenity

Philly coins

Very nice here

Lizette Wilson

Love to get my walk on with Bae.

Solei Alcaide

Very beautiful and scenic, good for long walks and dog walking.

Mark Farwell

Very clean and fine zoo, just don't go expecting to spend the whole day. Instead make it part of a larger outdoor day as part of the Brandywine area. Super friendly staff and great setting make up for it's small stature. Just wish they kept the otters, but the new goat area is very nice and clean.


So much history to explore. Old fair ground ruins from 1800s with plaques and old time pictures to help you visualize what it looked like.

A Business

One of my all time favorite places to run and relax. An awesome place for a family gathering. One thing though, some of the dog owners are a bit rude.

Patricia Carson

Tale the trail close to the zoo and you will definitely get a workout. The rest is flats ensconced with foliage and a lovely rise garden to enjoy. Geese crossing so watch out for droppings. Picnic tables, fishing and a man made bridge. I do not believe the water is clean enough to eat the fish.No fee to enter this particular park. There is a small zoo which has a nominal fee. Most lovely in Spring.Family friendly. No public restrooms only porta potties. I find those unclean. Also, carry in carry out policy. Dog friendly, too.Free parking.

Daryl Stanford

We go every year for Boo At The Zoo. Families dress up in their Halloween costumes, trick-or-treat with local vendors and get to see animals. Very nice time for the kids.

Leonard Harrison

Great place for morning walk!

Madison Collin

Good place to hang out picnic with family, good shade all over ,not really a good place for swimming cuz the water is so dark and coming from different sources

Tracey Laub Nilan

Peaceful place to enjoy the outdoors.

Brian Rickman

A beautiful park with paved trails along both sides of the river and several foot bridges connecting them.

Susan Midanek

My friend needed me & he took me here...just gorgeous

Heavensent G.

This place is great for walking, family activities and PEACEFULNESS!"

Christine Janvier

If you grew up around the Brandywine Hundred, you were lucky to enjoy the benefits of the Valley.

Ed Renfro

Awesome memorial and park. I will be back on next trip.

John Chaney

Brandywine is the crown jewel of Delaware State Parks. Absolutely gorgeous landscape unique to northern Delaware.

Mark Thomas

A quiet place to relax in the heart of the city. I have been coming here for since I was child and I'm still in awe of the beauty this park possesses.

Preston Akins

I love to enjoy the outdoors in listen to the flow of the water

AnishsCircle V

Nice place to walk or run around

Matthew Dietz

Still a nice place to take kids and relax :)

Bumblebee 123

Always a nice place to walk or just relax

Vinay Gupta

It's always relaxing here

Amber Coleman

Horrible. Wish I could give it NO stars. I paid $24 for my family and I to see four maybe five animals. If you want to see a REAL zoo for FREE come to New Jersey and go to the Cape May Zoo. Way better.

Justin Enright

Right in the middle of Wilmington is a beautiful park along Brandywine Creek. You can literally walk right into another park too, if you walk far enough. A wonderful place to spend an afternoon.

stephanie summerhill

Beautiful and clean. Very relaxing

Charles Dietz

AWESOME Walking Trails :-)

Paul Sharp

My favorite park in Delaware to walk by the water

Lorie Tudor

We walk along the river it. There are several small bridges as well as large ones so you can walk a circle on both sides. Its an incredible tree filled park in the middle of an urban neighborhood.

Poisonous Smile

This place is gorgeous it's perfect for people of any age and also a great place to meditate because of the peaceful water sound

L Aikens

Nice little outing for the kids

Quazonia Quarles

I was there for a school field trip to have lunch. My students enjoyed being there in nature.

Dizzy Guide


Lena Conquest

I love just coming and sitting by the water!! So relaxing!!!

Heather Yacabell

A scenic park with ample shade from the surrounding mature trees and a beautiful view of the Brandywine Creek. The vibrant cherry blossom trees are stunning in the springtime! A cute rose garden is nearby as well as views of some small waterfall type areas in the creek. Plus, there are bridges within the park that are architecturally interesting. A great park for pictures as there’s plenty of great photo opportunities! The park is also within very close walking distance to the Brandywine Zoo for a fun day trip with a picnic lunch.

Shelley Mincer

Zoo was a bit disappointing a lot of birds no big animals. The bald eagles are beautiful

Brendan T

Nice place to walk around , plus there are ducks

Belden Walker

It was so relaxing

Jill Ferris

Nice park alongside the water. But note that if you have a stroller or otherwise can't take stairs it can be hard to cross from side to side, as most of the bridges do not have ramp access. Plenty of picnic tables and benches, as well as free parking. Zoo is located in the park as well.

David Luber

Nice playground for the kids and beautiful setting

Khalilah Owens

This was my 1st time visiting and I must admit I was in awe of the beauty of the park and how much ground can be covered. The many different paths that I will learn in the near future made me curious to explore the park as a regular. Although there's construction going on in different areas of the park, it's still a beautiful place to leisurely walk, people watch, enjoy the water and meet some furry friends along the way. I gave 4 stars because the construction caused you to walk in the street in certain parts which made it quite unsafe as the cars weren't trying to slow down.

Linda McKenzie

I haven't actually visited Brandywine Park since the late Spring season. It is a beautiful place for walking n having impromptu outdoor meals. I believe it is under renovation at this time though.

Al Mogerman

The zoo is small but good for a quick walk through. Great for small children,has a petting area with goats.

Slyer E

Park at the Brandywine zoo parking. Interesting things to see and lots of photo ready locations. Can go around both sides of the river starting at the white bridge and going over the cable bridge.

Joseph Thomas

Grew up in this area. Love being here..

Dan Stine

Nice this time of the year

Carol Cugini

Our family has been to many zoos around the country. This was the smallest zoo we've been to. The staff was friendly. They have a nice river otter exhibit and red panda exhibit. They have some animal "talks", which I always enjoy. They are two hours apart and there's not enough to see and do for two hours until the next one. You can take your time and be through the exhibits and gift shop in an hour or less. There gift shop was well stocked and the prices were probably a little better than average. This is a zoo you may visit if you are close by any way. If you are driving a distance select the Cape May zoo in NJ, the Philadelphia zoo, or the National zoo near DC. If you are coming from the West near Harrisburg go north to Lake Tobias in Halifax, and take the safari ride and feed the animals from the bus. They also have a great petting zoo, where you can feed the animals and a small but very nice reptile house.

Shelly Daisy D

Nice family park. Great trail and nicely kept grounds. The Rose Garden is beautiful. The little zoo is cute, a bit run down, but very cute. Spring is the perfect time to visit.

Charles Smith

Love it but where's all the trash cans

JC Jari

Quiet and pleasant.

Rebecca Riordan

Various parking areas to hike from. Will explore more soon. Can hike along the river. Scenic & historic area for those interested in the historic sites & museums along the Delaware- Pennsylvania border.

Sheila Mugabi

The park is the country right in the middle of the city. There are nesting geese, fishing great blue herons and cormorants plus other wildlife. There is a beautiful rose garden, a zoo and connections to green paths that go around to the county parks. Wonderful place!

Dave gill

Good little road trip stop.

Chris W. James

Awesome place to hang out.

Willis Aungst

The weather was great thank the lord no humidity nice breeze had a gd time

Aiden Mckenney

Great place to be, very clean and a nice atmosphere, always active.

Andre Strother

The main vein of water way through our city. The Brandywine River. You can easily forget that you're smack dab in the heart of the concrete jungle.

Barbara Wilson

Nice walk but lots of construction throughout the park for months now.

S.J. Andersen

I love this park! Such a jam in the middle of Wilmington.

Rakia Lewis

Peaceful and it's me and nature!

Dawn Mcniel

It is one of the most beautiful spots! I love feeding the geese and ducks, sitting on the rocks, and putting my feet in the warer.

Geraldo Gonzalez

Pace and quiet

Jojo Saylor

Excellent Experience

Lars Hindsley

Great little park closeby, always beautiful!

isaac sapp

Great place to take the kids. A wide variety of animals from condors, walibees, and porcupines. They have a petting area with goats. It's a small place but they have plans on expanding. It was very clean when I went and they have a gift shop and a place where you can get lunch. You won't be disappointed.

Enoch Moore

A great place to relax and enjoy yourself...nature at it's finest, deer hiding within the tree's, birds of all species flying and swimming about and you may even see a beaver or dog love's jumping in the water to cool down or fetch a stick...I'd recommend everyone to experience what Brandywine Creek State Park has to offer.

bridgette sammons

If you work downtown Great place to relax!

Imran Bajwa

Great fun for kids and adults. Gets you back to nature.

Brent Kottner

Nice park but occasionally I would question my safety.

Todd Foust

Nice quick zoo. All animals accounted for and visible. Two beautiful eagles worth through trip alone.

Janice Moon

Nothing else to do? Go and chill. Maybe eat lunch. Kids love it too. The ZOO is across the road if you want to visit. Easy parking by the water.

g lane

a true jewel. a pack it in pack it out park.
