About Us:

The new Killens Pond Nature Center sits at the edge of the park’s forest with a spectacular view of Killens Pond from the building's covered deck.

The Nature Center is an environmentally-friendly building with features such as rainwater recovery and reuse, geothermal heating and cooling and on-site wastewater treatment.

A lab on the lower level provides space for environmental education and public programs. The rooms on the first level open onto a covered deck overlooking the forest and mill pond. A meeting room is available for rent, and the Nature Center's collection of native reptiles and amphibians is located on this level.

Definitely not worth it. Management and staff are rude. Life guards blow their whistles constantly. Thunder struck and not only do they make you leave the pool but the park. We were waiting outside to get back in and my 4 yo son needed to use the restroom. I asked a girl closest to us if he could go back in. She instructed us to walk halfway across the park to use the bathroom. I asked her if she could see that he's 4. She gave me a look, turned around and told another girl who worked there that "he can f--k off!" It was cheap, but not worth the drive or rude experience.

My daughter and grandson and i went yesterday. We ordered tickets on line the previous day. It's $8 each and $1.50 service charge. One local public water park is $25. Over 42" and $18 under 42" babies who can't walk free. Another public park is over 42" $38. And under 42" $23. If you are over 60 you cannot ride slides. Everyone pays regardless of age. This is a state park. All Delaware parks charge an entrance fee per car. You can get season passes if you go a lot. I have a lifetime because I am over 65. It cost me $50 and have had it for 10 years. This is not a grand bells and whistles park. It is not hugh but is a decent size. They have strict rules that are posted out side and online. Their staff was very good. The guards are very attentive. Whistles blow a lot. When it's 98° it is a reasonable alternative to cool off. The food is no more expensive than most any other resort eating establishments. You can bring food and eat outside the water area. And come back in without charge. It's state run and they strive to be a safe and reasonable environment for all. If someone were to get harmed by wayward jewelry they would probably get sued. Also if you are under 2 you don't pay. They make you wear swimming clothes only for several reasons, which make it constant for everyone. I found it to be clean and we'll managed. Of course when it's 98° it is going to fill up fast. You have other options if this is not a place you want to go to. But you will not find perfection anywhere.
