By far the most popular place for runners and walkers of all abilities in the county is Delcastle Recreation Center, located on McKennan’s Church Road across from Delcastle Golf Course. There is a rolling mile and three-quarters lighted, paved asphalt loop. Most runners start at the most northerly parking lot near the tennis courts where there is an area to stretch, water fountain and port-a-john available.

Located on Limestone Road about 1 1/2 mile from Kirkwood Highway is Carousel Park. This Park has a three mile, rolling, mulch bark path as well as many side trails. this is much more open land than the wooded parks in Newark.

Located on Faulkland Road off Route 41 you’ll find Brandywine Springs Park. For the runner who needs a challenge you’ll find a hilly 5K cross country course.
