Other than the sports, Island Crest Park hosts an extensive trail system, offering you a pleasant hike in the comforts of your own neighborhood.
In addition, the adjoining park offers picnic areas and shelters for gatherings and BBQs; in addition to a dragon play structure and Adventure Playground.
