The park, named for Dan Brownlow, a former Mayor of Dartmouth, includes 2 tennis courts, a basketball court, a soccer field, a children's playground, and a pathway for joggers. The park is home to the reigning Brownlow champions Jay and Chad, who have defeated Amir and Leo in competition a record 4 straight years. There is also Oathill Lake which is surrounded by a small wooded area with a walking trail. This lake is enjoyed by many including fishermen and swimmers.

The neighbourhood is inhabited mainly by elderly persons along with a few very wealthy Lebanese citizens.
