WILMINGTON – DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation announced today that the park office for Wilmington State Parks will be temporarily relocated on April 1 from Baynard Stadium to the Blue Ball Barn, part of Alapocas Run State Park in Wilmington. All maintenance and administrative functions of Wilmington State Parks will operate out of Blue Ball Barn and Alapocas Run State Park as of April 1.

The temporary move is in preparation for the reconstruction of Baynard Stadium, which will be renamed Abessinio Stadium when a new facility is built on the site. Construction is expected to be complete in the fall of 2020. Once construction is complete, the park office for Wilmington State Parks will return to the stadium and be a part of the new complex. The rehabilitation of the stadium is a partnership between the Salesianum School and the City of Wilmington.

As of April 1, Wilmington and Alapocas Run state parks visitors can get maps and information, apply for picnic and event permits, reserve athletic fields, register for camps and programs, and purchase annual passes at Blue Ball Barn, located at 1914 West Park Drive, Wilmington, DE 19803. The phone number is 302-577-1164.
