This park mostly consists of ball and soccer fields.
There is a small pond about .2 of a mile past the sign for Heistien Park on Doby Road. One of the ball fields connects to the pond area. Dawson Brook runs through the park near the pond.
There is a small circular walk you can take around the pond.
The dominant species is autumn olive.
