Delaware County is committed to planning and providing support for open space, trails, and the protection of natural resources.

Open spaces, parks and trails are essential elements of a vibrant and healthy community. A variety of recreational offerings that include active facilities (ball fields and playgrounds) and passive recreation (nature parks, hiking paths, and multi-use trails) provide spaces for exercise, socialization, and opportunities to connect with nature. As such, the Delaware County Planning Department has developed a number of plans and initiatives that support open space protection, development of trails, and conservation of our important natural resources.
