There’s a little something for everyone on the 30 acres of Delano Park in Decatur. At 130+ years old, the park is recognized as a designed historic landscape and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

If you have little ones, you’ll love the large splash pad that was built with the mission of accessibility and fun for all children. The splash pad has a large open surface surrounded by stone and concrete benches. There is beauty all around you as the park offers a variety of trees, shrubs, sculptures, and flowers and you feel in the middle of nature.

Delano Park Features

There is plenty of seating, and if you want to bring a blanket for picnic, there is open grassy areas located outside the gate beside the splash pad.

Through one gate is a state of the art “boundless” playground, which was created to fill the need of every child to play in a safe, accessible environment. This playground has everything and it’s BIG! Your kids will enjoy sliding, climbing, swinging, and more! The covered platforms and trees offer shade, and the ground is covered in a soft mat. There are restrooms on site and parking is available along the edges of the park.

Through another gate is trail through a small botanical garden with beautiful rocks and sculptures incorporated in the landscape. My four year-old son had fun skipping along and spotting all the animals. There is even a stone bandstand. And if you venture across a small street, you’ll enjoy another beautiful garden, lush with flowers and trees.
