Park Permit Application

Due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic and associated restrictions, New Castle County will be delaying the opening of their rental season until March 1, 2021.  We will accept applications in March with modifications that incorporate the COVID safety recommendations at that time. 

Please check back for updates.  If you have questions, you can contact the Parks Permits Office at ParksPermits@newcastlede.gov or 302-395-5606.  Thank you for your continued support.
