These include the “Fun Zone,” a seamless family-focused recreational site that incorporates a skate park, colorful basketball courts with fiberglass backboards, and a state-of-the-art playground with special attractions such as a climbing apparatus and puzzles.
 
In addition, a nautical-themed playground, constructed last year by the West Cabana area, incorporates slides, a climbing apparatus and a ship with various interactive features. The park also features swimming pools, beach volleyball courts, picnic areas, cabanas, a campground, pools, athletic fields, a dog run, and a concession.
