About the Park

Bellevue Hall commands a grand view of this historic estate, and its present form reflects alterations made by William du Pont, Jr. Mr. du Pont surrounded his home with the finest facilities: tennis courts, equestrian stables, gardens, and a picturesque pond, amid woodlands and fields overlooking the Delaware River. Mansion tours are offered periodically, detailing how Mr. du Pont transformed the mansion from a Gothic Revival castle into a replica of President James Madison's home, Montpelier. The park was acquired by the State of Delaware in 1976.

Outdoor Recreation

A 1-and-1/8-mile fitness track circles a catch-and-release fishing pond stocked with bass, catfish, and sunfish, while the nearby exercise trail offers a refreshing workout. Hiking trails allow you to explore other parts of the estate. If you prefer cycling, both paved and unpaved paths lead you on a leisurely tour.

Bellevue Tennis Center features eight clay courts and offers a number of tennis programs, both instructional and social, as well as tennis lessons and racquet-stringing. Bellevue is also home to Wellspring Farm, a modern equestrian facility with indoor and outdoor arenas offering private and group riding lessons, boarding and therapeutic riding.
