Batter Up! Baseball Has Arrived in Wilmington

wilmington-blue-rocksNo spring in Wilmington is complete without a trip to the ballpark to see our very own minor league baseball team in action. And if you’re a die-hard Wilmington Blue Rocks fan, you can purchase your 6-12 game Blue Rocks Mini Plan – including the option for a “Sunday Funday” plan – right now to get the best seats in the house.

Of course, residents of the beautiful Darley Green community need not worry about arriving at Frawley Stadium in time for the game. Via I-95 N or I-495 N, Frawley Stadium is just 20 minutes away!

What to know when planning for game day

If you’re planning to see the Wilmington Blue Rocks this year, keep in mind that the team is hosting numerous giveaways during the season, including Desert Camo Hat Night on May 3, Star Wars Night on June 3 and the Mega Candy Drop on June 12. Your family can also view fireworks at Frawley Stadium throughout the summer.

Strolling along the Riverfront this spring

Before or after the game, there’s always plenty to do on the Wilmington Riverfront. Every local family should visit the famous Kalmar Nyckel at least once. Although it’s a replica of the original ship, its builders used the same old world craftsmanship as the original builders. The original ship was famous for bringing European settlers to the Christina River in 1638. Visit the Kalmar Nyckel at the Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park near the Shipyard Shops. Tours and excursions are available.

If the weather isn’t being cooperative, families can check out the 25,000-square foot Stratosphere Trampoline Park. Truly a unique experience, this trampoline park is a first for Delaware. Families are invited to defy gravity while promoting physical fitness. In addition to the main arena, the Stratosphere Trampoline Park features various game areas, a snack shack, and even private party areas for gatherings. Parking is free.

When your family has had their fill of jumping around indoors, head outdoors to the local urban wildlife refuge. The Russell W. Peterson Wildlife Refuge, located on the riverfront in Wilmington, is quite literally a sanctuary for animal lovers and wildlife alike. Visit the Dupont Environmental Education Center, which features free educational programs, a 10-acre ornamental garden, and a quarter-mile pond loop. No registration is needed for the free programs; just drop in to meet marsh animals, go on a storybook walk, or feed the turtles, toads, and black snakes.

While watching the Blue Rocks at Frawley Stadium, your family can enjoy a range of concessions – including a gluten-free menu! But the Riverfront in Wilmington also has plenty to offer local gourmands – from country comfort food to trendy fine dining options. After spending a day enjoying the river, check out highly rated restaurants such as Timothy’s Riverfront Grill, Big Fish Grill on the Riverfront, or the River Rock Kitchen.
