Stango Park

Stango Park is located along Kings Highway and the corner of Adams Avenue and serves as the gateway to Lewes.  The original portion of the park, with its large spreading trees is named for former Mayor Al Stango a twelve term Mayor of Lewes retiring from office in 1992. Currently the park has expanded to include the 2016 construction of Lewes Public Library.   The library is an integral part of an emerging 10-acre cultural campus. The Junction Breakwater Trailhead offers ample parking and a comfort station. It is the hub for an 18 -mile regional hiking and biking trail to and from Rehoboth Beach via the Junction -Breakwater and Cape Henlopen State Park.  The park’s cultural amenities include The Lewes History Museum, The Margaret Rollins Community Center, Children's Learning Garden and the Lewes Junction Rail Road Association exhibit.  Stango Park is also host to the Summer Concert Series, with live music under the cool shade of magnificent old trees on a carpet of grass.  Family and friends are invited to bring a blanket or chair and enjoy the free entertainment.  Whether joining the activities in the Childrens Learning Garden, visiting the Lewes History Museum, Lewes Public Library, Rail car exhibit, using the trailhead, or enjoying music on a summer evening, Stango Park offers a vibrant array of activities for residents and visitors. All are invited to enjoy one of our many beautiful parks.
