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:
Artifacts from the amusement park can be seen in the Red Clay Valley Visitor's Center and Museum located on the Wilmington & Western Railroad's Greenbank Station property on Route 41 near
The Ladies Pavilion, which was a social lounge and restroom for ladies only.
The Band Stand - the park featured its own band, which played a variety of musical selections.
The Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) Railroad Pavilion, which stood near the park entrance.
The Boardwalk, which was lined with all sorts of amusements and concession stands.
