About

No matter what you are planning, there is a special place in your Delaware State Parks to create a one-of-a-kind event. We have unique locations that are perfect for a casual business meeting for ten or an elegant wedding for hundreds, situated within some of Delaware's most scenic areas. Facilities are available for a few hours or a few days.

Bellevue State Park is a 328-acre (133 ha) Delaware state park in the suburbs of Wilmington in New Castle County, Delaware in the United States. The park is named for Bellevue Hall, the former mansion of William du Pont, Jr. Many of the facilities at the park were built by du Pont. Bellevue State Park overlooks the Delaware River and is open for year-round recreation, daily, from 8 a.m. until sunset.

The Mount Pleasant Methodist Episcopal Church and Parsonage is located in Bellevue State Park; it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.

    Auburn Valley is Amazing

    Auburn Valley State Park was the most beautiful place I could have imagined. Working with Crystal Boddy was wonderful, she answered all my questions quickly and was accommodating and friendly.

    If I could give more than 5 stars for value, I would give DE State Parks a solid 10! The cost for what you receive is mind-blowing. We had our ceremony and reception at the Judge Morris Estate on the White Clay Creek State Park property. We had the house and the outside property to ourselves for a total of 8 hours, really. Vendors arrived at noon at the earliest and we closed up shop at 8pm. It was a hot day, but the property is gorgeous and holds historic value, and the staff at DE State Parks couldn't be kinder. The ladies I worked with were wonderfully pleasant. SIDE NOTE: If you have a summer wedding, bring portable AC for the Bride and Groom Suites. The house is VERY old and doesn't have central AC. Our wedding was on a 98 degree day and we were suffering a bit upstairs. Drink lots of water, bring fans, and borrow a portable AC system from someone!

    We booked Killen's Pond Nature Center, this location is great because it has a conference room, 2 decks, beautiful foyer and outside mini theater surrounded by beautiful nature.
    Rachel, Stephanie and the entire staff were super helpful and flexible. Stephanie pretty much became my wedding planner at some point, dealing with rentals and catering to figure out the layout for the service.
    They cleaned the location entirely before the day and were very organized about drop offs and schedule. Our photographer and videographer loved the venue and we were lucky to have great weather.
    The only bad thing is that we had to leave by 10 pm, I wish we had paid all the extra hour fees to stay longer, other than that it's a great location for an amazing price. They even have the tables and chairs for you to use!
