Among them are an 18 station self-guided fitness circuit, lighted tennis courts, sand volleyball court, picnic pavilion, gazebo ideal for weddings and Harbor Hideout playground designed by the children of Escanaba and built with volunteer labor and citizen contributions.
A bicycle path leads to the swimming beach and bath house facilities and connects with Aronson Island. The island is a natural, park like area with parking for boat trailers, a boat launch and a handicapped accessible fishing pier. Solar lighting provides visibility during early/late launch times.
The natural harbor of the Escanaba Marina provides shelter and services to transient and resident boaters including fuel, electricity, showers, dock attendants, rental bikes, and tourist information dispensed from the newly constructed Harbormaster Building. There is a small boat launch at the yacht harbor too.
The Delta County Historical Museum and Sand Point Lighthouse are adjacent to the yacht harbor.
The Karas Memorial Band shell is located at the south end of the park. Weekly band concerts are held during summer months on Wednesday evenings at 7:30PM.
