Oak Island in downtown Wausau features a Rose Bowl baseball diamond (Junior and Senior League) with lights for nighttime play, bleacher seating and drinking fountain. Other amenities include six lighted tennis courts, skateboard park, boat landing with dock, a grill pit, paved path, drinking fountain, flush toilets with sinks, playground equipment, two open shelters, grills, picnic tables, pathways with benches, dumpsters, recycling station, and a connecting bridge to Fern Island. The park's enclosed shelter offers a fireplace, drinking fountain, stove top, kitchen sink (no hot water), electricity, rustic wooden tables and benches.

Fern Island is adjacent and features open play areas, hiking trails with connecting bridges, and offers a scenic, natural setting that has become a popular place for wedding ceremonies and photographs.

Bird watching is best in spring and fall when migrants are on the move and summer is a good time to see the nesting species.
