The site includes the following features:

  • entrance staging area
  • winding trails
  • diverse terrain
  • open training sites
  • rest locations
  • agility park
  • amphitheatre
  • interpretive kiosks
  • small dogs area

Due to the site's closeness to Piper Creek, the trails and amenities were designed to mirror the creek's wandering nature; hence, it has appropriately been named 'The Oxbows", as the term "oxbow" is widely used to refer to a U-shaped meander in a river.
