The neighborhood is less than 1 mile from the Cape May/Lewes Ferry and sits directly on the Delaware Bay (great for small children). There is a community fishing pier and pool. The home backs up to the 5,200 acre Cape Henlopen State Park. The ocean beach at Cape Henlopen State Park is open year-round. There are two beaches that are open to swimming at the park with lifeguard patrols between the Memorial and Labor Day weekends.
The 18 hole disc golf course and basketball courts are open year-round.
Cape Henlopen State Park is a popular fishing destination. Anglers may fish from the beach or from the fishing pier on Delaware Bay. A concessionaire operates the Cape Henlopen Fishing Center, a bait and tackle shop at the pier. It is open seven days a week May 15 - October 1. Visitors to the park may drive onto the beach for surf fishing after receiving a permit from the park authorities. Access over the dunes is open to pedestrians at all times.
There are a variety of marked nature and hiking trails at the park, ranging from a beach to pine forests. Bicycles are another popular way to explore the park, and rentals are available during part of the year. The scenic bike path connects the town of Lewes to the town of Rehoboth.
Cape Henlopen State Park is the eastern terminus of the American Discovery Trail, which is the only transcontinental trail in the United State+ More
