The canyon occupies 70 acres and is open to the public. According to BayNature.org, "Glen Canyon contains one of the few stretches of historic free-flowing Islais Creek. Good for a pleasant stroll or outing with the dog, the park also hosts a community center, sports fields, children's camp, and tennis courts."
