Paved Perimeter Walkway 

Walking, jogging and rollerblading can all be done on a 3.1 km paved perimeter walkway around the park. A large portion of the walkway passes by unique and natural riparian areas. The deck along the south side provides a relaxing rest spot and a place to observe many different birds.

The number of ball diamonds and soccer pitches make McArthur Island Park an ideal tournament centre. There are nine ball diamonds used by slo-pitch and minor baseball leagues, and two major baseball fields: Norbrock Stadium and Canada Games Ball Field.
