Kyle Schultz completed interpretive markings along Eagle Trail, there is also a new park bench near the volley ball court. this project was led by Kyle with other volunteering scouts.
Eagle Trail circles the park and has rustic benches for "rest stops." The trail system was expanded in 2006 into the wooded buffs of the western and northwestern sections of the park, adding more than 1.5 miles. Hikers can now enjoy "Summit Loop," that has a natural overlook at the highest point, located in the northwest corner of the park. Outdoor enthusiasts can find a natural habitat diverse with native trees, woodland flowers, ferns, wild berries, and wildlife along the marked trail system.
A detailed interpretive map marks trail names and describes other park amenities, and is posted in the kiosk at the junction of Eagle Trail and Eagle Pass, and the informational kiosk next to the park pavilion.
The playground area at Glover Park was updated and improved in 2009. A track ride, space net climber, and horizontal climber with other play accessories were added to the existing play events. The St. Croix County Parks Dept. completed an independent inspection in the same year to make the play area more safe and enjoyable for all users. A rubberized surface material was installed to one of the play structures, giving individuals with disabilities easier access to the equipment.
