Grand Vue Park's goal is to provide guests with a clean and safe natural environment in a courteous and friendly manner. Its mission is also to offer entertaining and educational fun and recreation for friends and families, as well to provide comfortable lodging. The park features numerous amenities, including an aquatic center, zipline canopy tour, twelve miles of trails for a variety of uses, zipline ride, playgrounds, ten geocaches, Land Navigation Course, amphitheater, gift shop, concessions, playgounds, and bird feeder stations. There's also an executive Par-3 golf course, family disc golf course, championship disc golf course, and a miniature golf course.
Mountain biking fans can enjoy twenty-one miles of newly renovated hilly terrain trails throughout Grand Vue Park, which also feature scenic stops along the paths. Mountain bike trails are marked with a blaze system of orange diamonds that contain a reflective border to assist bicyclists during night rides. Riders typically start at the park's main office on the double track leading to the Mountain Bike Trailhead.
Some areas of the bike course are technical, suited more towards riders of an intermediate or advanced level. A four-mile biking and hiking double track is offered for riders who are novices or beginners, with more beginner trails planned for the near future. The park also provides a schedule for trail walks, group mountain bike rides, races, and other events.
On Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings, guests can participate in scheduled group rides at Grand Vue Park. These rides, while technically group rides, are self-guided and meet near the main office at the Trail Center. The Trailhead Grille offers some great food and drinks that guests can enjoy after their ride. Guided hiking tours along the mountain biking trails in Grand Vue Park are also offered to guests. Scenic views of both the park and the surrounding area can be found along the trails. The distance of the hike is based on the desired pace of participants. Each hike last about two hours and includes a set of binoculars.
Constructed in 2007, the playground was added to Grand Vue Park to provide children of ages two to twelve with a safe and fun environment in which to play. The area includes benches, a small shelter for picnics, and a restroom. Fans of golf can enjoy the park with a choice of three different golf experiences. The park has quickly turned into a destination for those wanting an array of fun challenges and activities.

This tour also features two suspension bridges, and the Zip Line Ride, a dual zip line of 2,100 feet.
