The Master Gardeners and Hosta Society also have demonstration gardens at the Park. All plants are clearly labeled so visitors may learn about varieties that would be appropriate for home gardens.
Along with gardens, the Park provides many other amenities, including a walking trail, playground, shelters and restrooms. The Noelridge Aquatic Center is located on the south edge of the park.
