The 14.9-acre park has a children's playground, two picnic pavilions, public restrooms, barbecue pits and a walking track. It is lit in the evenings and hosts an annual "Jazz in the Park" concert each July.
The City of Irondale updated the park and made it more accessible to visitors with disabilities. Playground equipment was replaced, the pavilions were repaired, and the existing tennis courts were removed to create a new lawn space. The renovated park was dedicated on June 27, 2015.
