The Parks Division is responsible for planning, designing and managing parkland, open spaces, natural areas, trails, and pathways. The County has 249 parks covering nearly 6,000 acres of parkland.  Work includes designing and implementing playground, park and landscaping plans; mowing and trimming at all locations; athletic field maintenance and renovations; routine and emergency tree removals; playground maintenance and monthly safety inspections; court game maintenance and inspections; and an assortment of similar duties to maintain parkland.

New Castle County encourages the public to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) procedures for limiting potential transmission of COVID-19. Common procedures include practicing good hygiene by washing hands with soap and water and then using hand sanitizer, avoiding large activities and gatherings, and staying home if you are feeling sick or have a sick family member in the home.

Please keep in mind, that play equipment and other park fixtures are not sanitized by the County. We ask that all visitors follow current State guidelines for masking and social distancing.
