Town Park

The Ellendale Town Park is open year round (weather permitting) and is equipped with playground equipment, a gazebo, a small grill, and a pavilion that houses 6 picnic tables.
Ellendale Park is a TRASH FREE PARK, so we ask that you take all trash with you when you leave.

At June 7, 2016 Council meeting, Mayor and Council voted to start a reservation policy for our pavilion due to the growing popularity of the pavilion/park for parties. Effective June 13, 2016. Posted on pavilion and gate to park as of this date!

YOU MUST CALL TO RESERVE THE PARK FOR PARTIES!!! PLEASE CALL TOWN HALL MONDAY -THURSDAY 9-12 AT 302-422-6727.

At that time, you can check the availability of the date and time you are considering, learn about the $20.00 refundable deposit fee, and arrange to meet and go over the guidelines for the park.
