PRESS RELEASE: Wilmington Parks & Recreation Launches New Website

Updated: Sep 20, 2021 provides more opportunities for the community to learn about the outstanding parks in our city, book events, and register for youth and adult athletic programs

Wilmington Parks & Recreation, a local organization in place to enhance community wellness through outdoor recreation, open space, and natural resources, recently announced the launch of its new website with updated park pages, maps, and easy shelter reservations, and athletic program registration. is a one-stop destination for Wilmington residents to access all the parks, shelters, trails, and related outdoor-activity needs. The site includes a community calendar of events and ideas on how the parks can serve as a great place to host large or small events and celebrations from races, fundraisers, and tournaments to family reunions and birthday parties.

Jermaine Isaac, Wilmington Parks & Rec Director, believes that the new website is both appealing, fun, and efficient. “The new site has a lot to offer the community with illustrated maps and easy-to-navigate programs. It also provides our team efficiencies making it easier to manage shelter reservations and athletic programs registrations,” states Isaac.

Local branding and web design agency, Ellie Brands, partnered with Wilmington Parks & Rec to build the website. “Our goal was to give the parks a place to shine online, highlight each park and recreational activity and allow the community to explore all the features available in a fun and easy way,” comments Tara Morris, Ellie Brands Chief Brand Builder.

The new online park maps for the city’s largest parks, David R. Williams Memorial Park and J.W. Denver Williams Jr. Memorial Park, are vital to the site. Each map illustrates all there is to offer at these two parks, including the splash pad, skate park, dog park, playgrounds, and athletic fields. Site visitors can find trails, restrooms, and parking easily laid out on the maps.

The new website has already received great feedback since launching two weeks ago. And the Wilmington Parks & Rec team welcomes additional thoughts and ideas to continue to improve the site to achieve its mission to enhance community wellness and fun.
