The park has covered picnic tables, a large barbeque pit, childrenís play area and restrooms.
In 2005 a Master Plan was developed to change the landscape and function of the park when funding is available. See the Master Plan.
The Park features a splash pad type "Water Park" which opened in 2005, and is operated and maintained by the city. It offers many attractions that set it apart from an ordinary city swimming pool and includes a sunken ship toddler slide, a kiddies dual-action-slide, mushroom waterfall, and a figure 8 body-shoot slide.

Ringling Lake Park
The 600 acre park is located north of the city off Highway 112, on County Road 536, and provides a natural and rugged setting for hiking, fishing, and camping.
Ringling Lake was originally owned by the famous circus king, John Ringling and others, and was later donated to the City of Eastland. During the 1930's it was developed into a recreational park, but gradually lost its appeal. It is hoped funding may be available in the future to bring the park back to its full potential.
Located within the Park are the Cross Timbers Archery Club and the Eastland Rifle and Pistol Club.
