Murderkill River Greenway

Description: In 1965, the Division of Parks & Recreation began protecting lands along the Murderkill River. To date over 2,028 acres and 3 miles of river corridor have been protected at Killens Pond State Park and the Murderkill River Nature Preserve, stretching from Route 13 to Frederica. A one-half mile pathway was constructed from the park entrance on RD 384 to the Route 13 intersection. The pathway is part of State Bicycle Route 1 and links Lake Forest High School and Killens Pond State Park. A 3.5 mile canoe trail was established from Route 13 to the Coursey Pond spillway.

Mispillion Riverwalk

Description: The City of Milford has created a riverfront gem in its Mispillion Riverwalk. Adjacent to Walnut Street, the Riverwalk connects the downtown business area, a newly constructed library, amphitheater, community theater, University of Delaware Milford Campus building, and recreational areas. Plans are underway to link the Riverwalk via a pedestrian bridge to a long-established park on the river's north bank. Milford participates in the Main Street program revitalizing downtown centers.

Mispillion River Greenway (East & West of Milford)

Description: The Nature Conservancy, Delaware Wildlands and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service have preserved 2600 acres at Milford Neck. The Delaware Nature Society at Abbott's Mill Nature Center and the Department of Natural Resources are jointly working to create a greenway west of Milford. The greenway extends north from Abbotts Pond to Blairs Pond and will eventually connect the Milford chain of lakes.

Broadkill River

Description: The town of Milton has undertaken an ambitious plan to create the Governor's Walk along the Broadkill River, commemorating the birthplace of four Delaware Governor's and a Wyoming Governor. Milton is an active participant in the Main Street program. The Nature Conservancy has begun a new effort of protect land both upstream and downstream of Milton.
