The restroom is a porta-potty in a concrete enclosure. The bike trail that borders the southern edge of the park can be accessed to the east side of the park, but you have to leave the park to the north to get to the path. There is a Coast Redwood dedicated to James Hetrick near the northern entry to the park.

The greenbelt trail to this park is a very pretty bike ride alongside the creek. The park itself isn't very big, but there are two playground areas, a semi-large grassy field, BBQ grills and covered picnic tables. A trip down the big red "electric slide" is highly recommended.

It appears that the city's open container ordinance does not apply to this park.
