Wilmington condos close to family-friendly recreation

On top of its lively nightlife, the revamped Wilmington riverfront offers myriad activities and events that are ideal for the whole family. And sports fanatics will have no shortage of recreational opportunities in this town, which hosts its own minor league baseball team. Here’s just a small sampling of what’s on offer:

Wilmington Blue Rocks Baseball: Grab the kids and head to Frawley Stadium, where the Blue Rocks minor league baseball team entertains with some 70 games each year. And don’t forget to ask for player autographs, as this Class A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals is considered to be packed with future major league talent. When not drawing crowds with baseball games, Frawley Stadium packs them in with a wide range of concerts and events put on by local and national talent.

Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame: In 2002, the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame debuted its 5000 square-foot permanent home at Frawley Stadium, where guests can re-live some of sports’ greatest moments dating back to the Civil War. Take a walk down memory lane in this modern sports shrine that highlights everything from NCAA football to major Olympic feats. Visitors of all ages will love the interactive nature of this museum, which features touch screens, videos, and hands-on learning exhibits alongside photos and artifacts that detail the compelling history of sports in Delaware.

Riverwalkers: A public program created to promote better health and fitness among its residents, Riverwalkers invites participants to enjoy a scenic one-mile walk along the picturesque Christina River. The popular “Riverwalkers Family Challenge” offers prizes to those who walk 30 miles or more in a 6-week period. There are few other cities that offer such beautiful backdrops for the public to exercise!
