Big Oak County Park Map 


Big Oak County Park is a ninety acre site bordered on the west and north by SR1 (Exit 114 – South Smyrna Exit) and on the south by Big Oak Road (C.R. 325). It includes forty acres leased to the Delaware Aero Space Education Foundation for Space and Earth Science education and recreation. The location of the DASEF facility and Big Oak County Park’s free public access recreation and conservation demonstration areas make it a major regional outdoor destination.


Big Oak is Kent County's third major park, joining Brecknock Park in Camden and Browns Branch Park.


Kent County Levy Court dedicated Big Oak County Park and opened it to public use on September 30, 2006. Many recreation and conservation development and preservation activities have been underway since the spring of 2003.
