We have a vision to revitalize the Yorklyn Valley to its former charm. Together, we can transform a vacant manufacturing plant into a vibrant community alive with new growth, green efforts, and endless opportunities for outdoor activity and cultural enrichment.

Concept

The concept and inspiration that we have dreamed up for Yorklyn Village

Exciting times are just ahead. At this time, all buildings that were slated for demolition have been removed.  The remaining structures are not “abandoned” rather the bones and structure of soon to be “Yorklyn Village”.

With a commitment from the state, Artesian will have water on site by July 1.  With water in place, the historic buildings that remain will soon be available for renovation and lease.  Watch for more info on this in the near future.

Other plans in the works include a new amphitheater where the Delaware Symphony Orchestra will hold their summer outdoor concerts.  The Symphony has signed a letter of intent to manage the scheduling and production of presentations by other local, regional and national acts, and to bring other artistic activities to the site.

Across the road, the new parking area is complete and more paved walking/hiking/equestrian/steam car trails meander creekside thru the beautiful valley.

The new pavered portion of Gun Club Road is complete and has been connected to Yorklyn Road. This beautiful (water pervious) road offers easier access to Yorklyn Village.
