When you follow the road through the park, you will begin to notice that Heritage Park is home to some historic buildings. These buildings feature the Visitor's Center, the Nature Center, and the Art Studio. The Nature Center, which is known for its bird-watching area, is free and open to the public. The Art Studio is the former stables of the property, and is used for art and pottery classes.

As you explore the park, you will notice that the trails are the most dominant feature of the park. The trails wind through the park and provide scenic, overlooking views of the area and the Rouge River.

The recently-built splash park will be a big attraction for children. It is located next to the playscape area that also features volleyball nets and a large, open field for any other activities you can think of.
