Although 44.8 miles long, the park is only about 100 feet wide. Its main feature is the Washington and Old Dominion Railroad Trail (W&OD Trail), which is an asphalt-surfaced rail trail that goes through densely populated urban and suburban communities and rural areas. The majority of it, which is only approximately 10 feet wide, is right on top of the actual rail bed of the former W&OD Railroad, which was closed in 1968. It is popular with runners, walkers, cyclists, and roller skaters. The Park Authority placed along the trail mile markers and interpretative exhibits describing the natural and historic features. There is also a bluestone-surfaced bridle path near the Trail in its most westerly section.
There are over 100 acres consisting of over 20 varieties of cherry trees, collections of native trees, aquatic plants, azaleas, perennials, ferns and hosta as well as gardens of lilacs and herbs, three ponds, and more. A main structure, the Atrium, along with two gazebos and an island bridge are often used as wedding and event venues/
