The participark is a block of forest with a wide, mulched trail criss-crossing throughout, and with basic sturdy structures for various kinds of exercises. The playground is a large one, possibly the best in Nanaimo, with a lot of different kinds of equipment (for different ages). The tennis courts are at the south end of the park, near Beban Plaza (Quality Foods). The BMX track is on the northeast side of the park, off Labieux St.
