The Park has picnic tables and a playground, in addition to trails for hiking on and the suspended bridges.

The forest in the park has oak, pine, carob, and terebinth trees.  The hiking trails lead through the forest and down into the riverbed.

A wide path along the top of the park leads to the bridges; although the path is just a dirt trail, strollers can easily be pushed along the trail. Benches are placed at convenient intervals along the trail to allow for people to rest.

The upper path will take half an hour, while the hiking trails can take up to two hours.
