It is a vision of a conservation and recreation corridor that surrounds the Brandywine Creek in New Castle County and the City of Wilmington. The Greenway means different things to different communities depending upon their location along the Brandywine. For example, rural communities may focus on preserving and enhancing large places and wide connections, such as farms, forests, and stream banks, and while suburban and urban communities may focus on preserving and enhancing a few smaller places and narrower connections that remain, such as historic structures, trails, and neighborhood green spaces.
