April 27, 2022

The quaint city of Newark, Delaware is both charming and welcoming to visitors and residents alike. At Wilkinson Homes, we pride ourselves in building in the most sought-after neighborhoods throughout the incredible state of Delaware, and we know that the city of Newark will be the perfect location for our upcoming 55+ community, Briarcreek North. With a population of a little less than 35,000, it offers both small-town charm and a city atmosphere for residents to enjoy. 

The ideal location for active individuals

The state of Delaware paints a pristine picture of a relaxing and fulfilling lifestyle, and Newark expertly captures that idea. Walking through the main streets of the city allows you to take in the artwork lining the buildings, explore the various shops along the street and stop inside any restaurants that catch your eye. With several outdoor areas scattered throughout the city as well, including Rittenhouse Park, William M. Redd Jr. Park, the University of Delaware Botanic Gardens, and the Newark Country Club—you’ll be able to enjoy everything the area has to offer.   

Benefits of living near a college town

When you are thinking about where you want your future home to be located, a college town might not necessarily come to your mind right away—but there are many benefits you can experience when you live near one. 

Having the University of Delaware located within Newark adds even more appeal to the city. Within a college town, there are an endless array of entertainment activities and attractions to keep students, faculty, and visitors of the college occupied—and when you live near the college, you will be able to take advantage of everything it has going on. Whether it’s watching a football game at the Delaware stadium or easily getting tickets for concerts or art shows that come to town—there will always be something for you to enjoy.
