Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide Delaware's residents and visitors with safe and enjoyable recreational opportunities and open spaces, responsible stewardship of the lands and the cultural and natural resources that we have been entrusted to protect and manage and resource-based interpretive and educational services.

Description

A Delaware state park, charged with resource protection and interpretation of Pea Patch Island and Fort Delaware, a former Civil War-era coastal defense fortress. Fort Delaware uses living history programs and events to interpret the fort's history. Interpreters in period-correct clothing and uniforms assume the personas of men, women and children who were actually living on the island during the Civil War period to help the public learn what life was like on the island. Docents orient visitors and lead tours. Other volunteers help maintain exhibits, sew period clothing and participate in many other volunteer activities to support the fort's mission. For two years running, Fort Delaware has had more volunteers hours logged than any other Delaware State Park.
