- a playground
- great picnic spots
- outdoor fitness equipment to use for cardio and strength training.

Port Kells Park also includes the conservation of the Latimer Creek wetland. The wetland and habitat conservation area makes up the southern half of the park. There are some good spots for bird watching along the pathways at the northern edge of the wetland. Access these pathways from the main asphalt parking lot in the centre of the park.
Port Kells Park dates back to 1908, when the community of Port Kells was a small agricultural village serviced by the New Westminster and Southern Railway line.
Port Kells Park is a great place to host a picnic. There is one large picnic shelter located south of the parking lot. Picnic shelters are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Bike Pump Track
The forested area in Port Kells Park features a dirt jump area that is maintained by local riders. Suitable for intermediate to advanced riders, there are seven dirt jumps in total, with two berm turns at both ends of the jumps. Use caution and at your own risk.
