The park is centrally located to the downtown area and civic center.  A variety of trees, shrubs and flowers are interspersed throughout. Some of the trees are originals, dating back as many as 40+ years, including a large, planter-enclosed Phoenix canariensis palm and the Hosmer Memorial Redwood Tree. In addition, several memorial trees and Arbor Day tree plantings exist in the park. There are park benches, picnic tables and streetlights that line the unpaved pathway through the park.  Thanks to a generous donation from the Parks & Recreation Foundation of San Carlos, a water fountain has been installed in the park.
