The Friends of Brandywine Springs (FOBS) is a
non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to
the improvement and historical restoration of the Brandywine Springs Amusement Park. New Castle County Special Services Department now manages Brandywine Springs Park, located at Newport Gap Pike and Faulkland Road.


The Friends of Brandywine Springs do not intend to rebuild the amusement park. Our plan is to create a historical nature walk. We want to make a clear, safe trail for visitors to stroll through the park and learn a little Delaware history while enjoying the natural surroundings.


The following are some of our primary goals:


• A handicapped accessible trail along the path of
  the old trolley line and down the old boardwalk.

• Footbridges across Hyde Run to create a
  continuous walking path.

• Signs with photos to explain what once
  stood at sites where foundations are visible.

• Preserve and protect the historical
  foundations,which remain today.

• Restore the lake. If not feasible, the lakebed
  could be cleared of brush. Then attractive grasses
  and water plants could be planted which would
  give the illusion of water, absorb excess water,
  and attract wild life.
