A sand area is home to a “fossil find”. Various spring toys, monkey bars, merry-go-round, swings, slide, and a combination unit are also located in the area.
The park has three pavilions equipped with picnic tables and grills that are available for rent to township residents. A volleyball, horseshoe court and grill are included with each shelter. Two full sized Tennis Courts, three Baseball Fields, a Football Field, Basketball playing area and a Sledding Hill are also in the park.
