Canby County Park is divided by railroad tracks into two parts: Canby Park East and Canby Park West. Both have paved walkways, making them popular places for a stroll. They also offer small woodland areas, allowing visitors to escape the surrounding suburbs to reconnect with nature.

This park offers a variety of baseball and softball fields, two football fields, three basketball courts, two tennis courts, and multiple playgrounds. The swimming-pool complex in Canby Park East is temporarily closed.

Canby Park East is most accessible by taking Route 2 (Kirkwood Highway) to South Lincoln Street. A nearby landmark is St. Elizabeth Roman Catholic Parish. Canby Park West is most accessible from Route 4 (Maryland Avenue). Nearby landmarks there include Little Mill Creek and the railroad tracks, both of which cross the road.

As in any park, please be aware of your surroundings while walking in secluded areas.
