The Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation has retained the historic charm of Bellevue while providing many opportunities for recreation. Walking and jogging are popular activities at any time of the year. A 1-1/8 mile fitness track circles a catch-and-release fishing pond stocked with bass, catfish, and sunfish, while the nearby exercise trail offers a refreshing workout. Hiking trails allow you to explore other parts of the estate. If you prefer cycling, both paved and unpaved paths lead you on a leisurely tour.
The tennis facilities are outstanding, with eight outdoor clay courts. A tennis professional is available for lessons, and a pro shop stocks your favorite equipment. Bellevue also boasts a modern equestrian facility, with indoor and outdoor arenas for riding lessons.
