An accessible boardwalk borders the canal and ramps. A half-mile nature trail meanders along the inside perimeter of the park. A small outdoor amphitheater provides an ideal location for small classes and lectures.
A covered picnic area complete with tables and grill is located adjacent to the playscape and close to the entrance to the park. Restrooms are located adjacent to the parking lot near the Community Center. An additional covered picnic area, grill and tables are located at the bottom of the park.
