Lovely Brecknock Park, pictured above, is the pride of Camden town. While it did rank lower than adjacent Wyoming, it's still one of the safest places to live in Delaware, with hardly any crime to report.
Felton is home to Killen's Pond State Park, and if you ever had to wonder about your safety in Slower Lower, I'm certain it wasn't in Felton! This town is tiny and quiet - and has crime rates so low that it just barely missed the top 5 safest towns in Delaware.
Middletown is the first "big" town on the list, and it still is one of the safest towns in Delaware. The beautiful downtown, busy business district and sprawling farmland combine to produce very low crime rates.
Cheswold's low crime rates are enough to keep it in the top 5 safest towns in Delaware, which is great news for the residents of this tiny suburb.
