The County Executive announced the creation of the Parks Task Force on July 19, 2017. It was charged with providing recommendations on multiple topics:
Location(s) for a southern New Castle County park(s)
Development plan for a southern New Castle County park
Options and prioritization for additional parkland acquisition
Enhancements to existing parks
The Parks Task Force completed their work in late 2017 and since they presented their recommendations, the Southern Park Phase 1 has opened north of Middletown, and other recommendations have been implemented.
