The Delaware State Park System tends, nurtures and watches over 14 parks, preserving the natural, historical, cultural and recreational wonders of some of the most beautiful, interesting, and ecologically valuable areas for the enjoyment of all Delawareans and guests. There are islands - Fenwick Island, Thompsons Island, Burtons Island, Beach Plum Island. There are Ponds - Trap Pond, Trussum Pond, Gordon's Pond, Fresh Pond, Killens Pond, Lums Pond. There are woods - Alapocas Woods, Tulip Tree Woods, Barnes Woods. There is a baldcypress swamp, dark and mysterious, and dunes that "walk". All available for visitors to use, appreciate, learn from and enjoy. So, too, are the glorious ocean and bay beaches - Delaware Seashore, Cape Henlopen, Holts Landing. Miles of hiking trails. Campgrounds and a water park. The history of Forts Delaware and DuPont, Bellevue Hall, the Judge Morris Estate. Rockford Tower, Brandywine Zoo, H. Fletcher Brown, a tiny urban patch of green, and Fox Point, which hugs the banks of the Delaware River and watches over shipping traffic. All of these are the property- and the legacy- of the people of the First State.
