The Park includes a non-regulation sized baseball diamond and a T-ball field. These diamonds/fields share common outfield space. Also over-lapping a portion of the outfield is an area dedicated to flag/touch football, in a half-length football field arrangement. There is also a walking trail, pavilion, picnic tables, playground and basketball court.

East of the football field is a concession stand. Volunteers built the concession stand, which reflects the civic dedication to community life on the part of Park neighbors as well as residents of the City.

Indian Hill Park property was first bought in 1741 by William Thaxter, where he had his home and farmed the land that is now known as Indian Hill Park. An underpass was built in 1871 under the railroad tracks to allow the property owners to safely access the farm fields. In 1893, North Worcester Schoolhouse was built, which underwent two additional phases to become New North Worcester School. In 1981, the City sold the school to Salter School and kept the remaining 4 acres to be a public park.

Indian Hill Park is also home of Joe Schwartz Little League and Greendale Youth Flag Football League.
