A good portion of what was once the Community of Glenville is now, according to New Castle County parcel web page, 80 acres of open space owned by the State of Delaware. It is not your typical parcel of open space however. When the state acquired the property, after Glenville was devastated by flooding, it was developed to handle future flooding created by the Red Clay Creek. Accessibility onto the site isn’t easy due to the fact it is one huge basin but left in a natural state. The western edge of the property sits along a good portion of the Red Clay Creek south of rt4. On the east and southern boundaries it backs up to the properties along First State Blvd where a good bit of it is wet lands. The entire tract appears to be a natural reserve for birds and other types of wildlife.
