There is a playground, nature trail, history trail, bike route, lakes for fishing and sailing, and picnic tables and benches throughout. Dogs are welcome, apart from in the playground area and bikes have to stick to a certain route. There is a man-made flood barrier, which you can see on the nature and history trail.
