The park features a walking trail, playground, bocce, shuffleboard, basketball, sand volleyball, tennis, pickleball, sports fields, dog park, splash pad, and covered pavilions. It is also home to the Palm Coast Historical Society Museum.

A 3/4-mile walking trail runs along the park's perimeter. Explore the unique playground themed after the Bulow Plantation Sugar Mill, complete with coquina rock structures featuring slides, bridges and ladders, a climbing wall, a zip line, an archeological digging area, sandpit, treehouse, metallophone, ADA accessible rocker, sail shades, and seating areas. This park is also the home to the Palm Coast Historical Society headquarters, where you can learn more about the history of Palm Coast and the significance of the Bulow Plantation Sugar Mill. Play with your pups at the 1.5-acre Dog Park. A secure entry to the 1.5-acre Dog Park will open onto two separate play areas, one for large dogs and one for small. Wash-down stations are also available.

The facility has three tennis courts and one junior-sized tennis court with LED lighting that are striped for pickleball as well, two shuffleboard courts, two basketball courts, two bocce ball courts with LED lighting, two horseshoe pits, a sand volleyball court, two large multi-purpose sports fields, and 10 covered pavilions. The two baseball fields include bleacher shade coverings for added comfort.

Pickleball nets may be rented at no charge for use at the tennis/pickleball courts. They can be rented at the Palm Coast Community Center, 305 Palm Coast Parkway NE.

Holland Park offers separate spaces for small and large dogs to play and socialize. We take great pride in keeping our parks in tip-top shape! This means performing regular maintenance. The Holland Park dog parks will close Mondays and Fridays from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. for regular, preventative maintenance.

The City of Palm Coast recognizes that youth and adult sports programs positively impact the community's residents. The Palm Coast Sports Alliance was initially created as part of the economic development plan Prosperity 2021, with the goal being to create opportunities to promote and expand sports, recreation, and leisure programs for our local citizens, market and attract sporting and recreational events for the positive impact on citizens, and assist with hosting sporting events.

The Sports Alliance has since evolved to encompass all of Flagler County, bringing together local athletic groups and better engaging the community.
