A Relaxing Oasis

Come to White Clay Creek to escape the encroaching development of New Castle County. The park's lush greenery and sparkling streams offer a refreshing change of pace and countless opportunities for outdoor fun and relaxation.


There are plenty of year-round activities available at White Clay Creek. The Nature Center hosts fun and interesting public programs, and visitors can enjoy outdoor activities such as fishing, birdwatching or disc golf.

Families may take advantage of the large picnic area and pavilion for a reunion or to host a casual barbecue with friends, followed by an evening concert or other special event throughout the summer. Sledding and cross-country skiing are among the many winter activities available at the park.

Hikers and mountain bike riders can travel through the Middle Run Valley Natural Area to Possum Hill, follow the Lifecourse Fitness Trail in Carpenter Recreation Area, or hike the Pomeroy Rail-Trail to the pedestrian bridge over White Clay Creek.
