McGaw Park is the largest park in Fitchburg. The park is used for community events such as softball tournaments. The shelter can be reserved for picnics and gatherings for up to 100 people. This park is well suited for organized league activities such as youth ball, adult softball, and soccer.

The park contains four lighted softball diamonds, one youth ball field, one lacrosse field, a shelter with restrooms, twelve picnic tables, two tennis courts, two sand volleyball courts, half-court basketball, play equipment, a bike/pedestrian path, three parking areas, three electrical outles and landscaping. A 1.5-mile trail cuts through a 30-acre woodland. The trail head is located at the east parking lot. The park also has a 2-acre prairie area located near the northern entrance and tall grass areas in various park areas.

The Friends of McGaw Park have helped to maintain the woods by removing honeysuckle and other invasive species along trails. At a visioning session for the park, citizens recommended additional management of the forest. It is likely that a forest management plan will be developed.
