Knox County’s new park provides fun for families and their canine buddies. The park features a playground; a picnic pavilion; restrooms; a 9-hole par 3 disc golf and foot golf course; two walking trails; a 7-acre park for large dogs (with shelter, water fountain with dog bowl and walking path); a 0.7-acre park for small dogs (with a shelter and water fountain with dog bowl); and a tributary to Beaver Creek and a pedestrian bridge.

The PetSafe Dog Park has a 7-acre play area for large dogs which includes shelter, water fountain, and walking path. The 1-acre small dog park includes shelter and a water fountain.

Disc/Foot Golf is played like traditional golf, but with flying discs or soccer balls instead of golf balls and clubs. One point (stroke) is counted each time the disc is thrown or ball is kicked. The goal is to play each hole in the fewest "strokes" possible. The player with the lowest total strokes for the entire course wins. There are holes with flags for the soccer balls near the disc golf baskets, and the tee pads are the same. Each tee pad show the distances to either the basket or hole.
