The park can serve as a nice starting or ending point on a journey by foot or bike to the nearby Heritage Trail around historic Main Street and St. Anthony Falls or, going north up the river to connect with the Mississippi River Regional Corridor Trail that takes you to Anoka Riverfront Regional Park, Islands of Peace Park and, eventually, East and West Coon Rapids Regional Parks.
Boom Island was once used as a log sorting station for the logging industry. No longer an island due to filling in the back channel, the area is now use for recreation opportunities and a new residential community built along the Mississippi River.
