Historic Milton

Park and Recreation

Historic Milton offers a wide variety of recreational activities in our park, lakes and river.

Our Governor's Walk follows the Broadkill River throughout our downtown business district. Enjoy a stroll along Governor's Walk and enjoy the beauty of the area along with a sense of the history through the ages.

The Broadkill River flows through the center of town. Milton Memorial Park offers fishing from the banks or from our new fishing bridge. From the boat launch area, you can explore the Broadkill River or take a trip onto the Delaware Bay. A variety of playground equipment delights the younger set while you relax and enjoy a picnic or just take in the view. Keep a sharp eye out for our great blue herons, osprey and otters fishing in the river.

Wagamon's Pond and Diamond Pond offer some of the best in freshwater fishing in our state (license required), bass and pickerel compete with pan fish for the angler's attention. A new fishing pier at the Wagamon's Pond spillway provides handicap access to a top-notch fishing hole.

For those who prefer nature undisturbed, Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge is close by. Over 8,817 acres of marsh, woodlands and field are home to a multitude of wild creatures. The Refuge is a big hit with serious bird watcher who wish to increase their counts of species. Hunters take note and contact the Refuge for season availability. The Refuge has hiking trails for the more adventurous.

For the saltwater lover we have Broadkill Beach close by. Once a small group of modest summer houses, now large homes surrounded by decks complement the beach dune line. Prime Hook Beach is also growing.

For those who like solitude, Fowlers Beach is the spot. Park your car at road's end and stroll along the Delaware Bay shoreline to watch the shorebirds play or the ships plying the bay. All these beaches are excellent spots to test your surf fishing skills.
