The park has a baseball diamond with bleachers and dugouts, a basketball court, four tennis courts, soccer fields, volleyball pits, two shelters, restrooms, and play equipment. A pond fed by the Bark River provides hours of fishing enjoyment for everyone. A handicapped accessible pathway winds along the river bank and around the pond. It is a great place to picnic and play. Pathways at the southeast corner of the park connect with a path around Mill Place subdivision or a path along Maple Avenue. The Ice Age Trail enters the southwest end of Nixon Park and continues north through the park, behind the Hartland Public Library, through the downtown, along the Bark River past the Village of Hartland Fire Dept and Bark River Park to eventually connect with Hartbrook Park.
