Facilities and features include toilets, playground, picnic tables, bench seats, walking paths, drinking fountain, gardens beds, mature shade trees, bowling club and tennis club and the St Vincentís gardens is a heritage listed garden.

St Vincent Gardens is of national significance for its English style design around surrounding crescents. Designed by Clement Hodgkinson in 1868 the garden reflects the Georgian era. Tree plantings are arranged in symmetrical patterns with themed plantings throughout the gardens timescale, four of which are registered with the National Trust.

A lawn bowls club was established in 1873, a tennis club in 1883 on the site of an earlier croquet lawn. Two memorials rest within the gardens, a Returned Services League (RSL) memorial built in 1923-1925 and a memorial rest house in the memory of Dr Frederick Miller Johnson killed in WW1, sits to the north of the bowling green built in 1916.
