The park offers a playground and seasonal ice rink, in addition to three ball fields and four tennis courts. Permits are required for field and court use and reservation. Ten acres of natural trails were purchased and deeded to the town by Helen Binney Kitchel and Dan Wade, the local architect who designed the adjacent Perrot Memorial Library.
Parking is available along the interior roadway, east of the tennis courts reached from Sound Beach Avenue via Wesskum Wood Road.
