There's street parking nearby, but best access is on foot via the Coastal Walkway which follows the Coogee coastline stretching from Bondi to Maroubra.

Drinking alcohol is not permitted in the park.

There are a series of interesting recreational spaces separated by banks of mass planting. There are three tiers of native and indigenous planting: Norfolk Island pines for scale and shade, banksias and melaleucas for screening and coastal heath species for accent and mass planting.

Located at the southern end of the reserve is a large children's playground called the Stan Windon Memorial Playground (also referred to as the Grant Reserve Playground). The layout of the play area is designed to resemble an abstract ship moored to a jetty. There are pylons, decks, moorings, climbing ropes and a 7.5 metre high space net representing the ship's mast. The play area is extremely popular with local residents and visitors to the beachside parklands.

Two historic and spectacular ocean pools are located adjacent to the park – McIvers Baths (women and children only) and Wylie's Baths. Toilets are located close to the entrance to McIvers Baths.The southern area of the reserve has been developed as a meeting place and village green to be used for unstructured recreation. The rotunda and grassed amphitheatre provide an opportunity for live performances and the large open grassed oval is ideal for kite flying, ball games, picnicking and exercise.

BBQs in the Randwick Local Government Area are timed to operate from 8am to 8pm every day throughout the year.
