The lagoon water actually is the border between river water from Ibai river and saltwater from Terengganu Water. If we stand on the sand field, we could see a long line resembling the border. Water level in the lagoon area is quite low during low tide, several sand island could be seen emerged during low tide. However visitors are reminded to stay alert on water level increment as there are several cases where visitors got drawn away by the water not realizing the increasing water level.

Among other attractions found in this public park are banana boat ride(actually tow away), sofa like floats tow away, children playground and public jog and exercise circuit. Visitors could reach the park using their vehicles using the one-way road built around the park and park at couples of parking area in the park.
