There are over 31 acres to explore and as such, it's the perfect place for people to walk, sight-see, jog, exercise, rock climb, swim or just come out for a breath of fresh air.

If you are planning to go for a walk or jog, you'd go through a landscape that brings you close to nature, as there are a great number of shady trees. The trees not only cool the park, but provide a shady retreat for you to rest and catch your breath, after a brisk walk or jog.

The route gives you a choice of surfaces and elevations for a good workout. There are tarred roads that have a gradient that is flat and hilly, as well as surfaces that are sandy and stony. It is recommended that you wear a good pair of walking or jogging shoes to prevent any injury.
