Kent Trails is a 15-mile trail running from Millennium Park to Byron Center. A connecting route is available at Douglas Walker Park, making the park a good trailhead for Kent Trails adventures. Much of the connection runs along the 76th St corridor. From the trailhead to the junction with Kent Trails is a total distance of nearly 3 miles.

A horseshoe court is available on the west side of the creek near the guardrail bridge.
