Anson B. Nixon Park A water quality project of the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance and the Kennett Area Park Authority to restore portions of the East Branch of the Red Clay Creek and a tributary. Stream restoration addresses sediment, nitrogen and phosphorous pollution in the creek by stabilizing eroding stream banks, connecting the stream to flood plains, reducing new erosion in the creek channel and improving fish and aquatic habitats.  For more information go to   Please excuse our temporary closing of trails and work area sites.
