Ruffey Creek bisects the gardens diagonally and large expanses of grass are dotted with a mixture of native and exotic trees. Four picnic areas on the periphery of the gardens provide good views over the Ruffey Creek valley. There is a large playground in the south-west corner and jogging track. A lake/retarding basin has been developed in the park.
Majority of the reserve is off lead except for designated on lead areas around Victoria Street playground/BBQ and the Boulevard Playground/BBQ. Dogs are prohibited in fenced off vegetation areas.
On the first Saturday of each month a large group of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels enjoy Ruffey Lake Park.
