HJ Carroll Park is a 40 acre multipurpose park and athletic center. 

The park includes two shelters which can be reserved for events: the Rotary Pavilion and Wild Olympic Salmon Shelter. Other amenities include over a kilometer of accessible, surfaced walking trail along the park’s perimeter; the Kul Kah Han Native Plant Garden where you can experience and learn about Pacific Northwest native plant species; the Chimacum Creek access area and Chimacum Creek Labyrinth - a maze built of stones for meditation; access to the Rick Tollefson Memorial Trail; restrooms; on-site caretakers; and a bus stop serviced by Jefferson Transit.

The Jefferson Universal Movement Playground, JUMP! playground is Jefferson County's first fully accessible and inclusive playground, designed to provide play opportunities for all children regardless of ability.

The playground is situated adjacent to the basketball court and parking area, with pathways leading to and from the restroom building.

The playground design goes beyond the minimum accessibility standards to create a play environment that includes everyone and challenges them at their individual level. Inclusive playgrounds are not just for children with physical mobility impairments. They are designed for children with all abilities and varying impairments to engage in play on various levels and with different sensory experiences available to them.

PHASE 2 of the JUMP! Playground is currently in development. This critical final component of the playground will fill in an unused area and will be specially designed to serve younger children of all abilities ages 2 to 5. 

The athletic area includes two outdoor basketball courts, athletic fields, concessions stand, picnic area with outdoor grills, playground overlooking athletic fields, BMX practice track for all sorts of bicycles and skill levels, and a disc golf course with nine holes. Athletic fields include a large soccer field capable of supporting numerous games, and baseball and softball with skinned infield, backstop, and bleachers.
