Barbecue pits are also available for all to have barbecue parties for celebrations, gatherings, etc. There is a restaurant called Wild Oats Bar for dining. Other activities including inline skating and taiqi are also available. Watersports activities including dragon-boating, kayaking, wakeboarding, remote control sailboat, power boating and boating can be enjoyed by the youths. Many children play with sparklers and carry lanterns during the Lantern Festival.
The park has two distinctive zones: the "Southern Active Zone" where the features for major activities are provided, and the densely forested area in the north of the lake which forms the "Passive Zone".
