The Visitor Center is accessible from Big Break Road. It includes hands-on and informational displays about the Delta. The center is staffed by Naturalists and Student Aides who are happy to share information about the park and activities in the area, including wetland walks and adjoining trails. In addition, Big Break Regional Shoreline offers picnic and meadow areas, a small shaded amphitheater, boat and kayak launch facilities, and a fishing pier. It hosts the Delta Discovery Experience with covered outdoor areas for interpretive and educational programs highlighting the Delta, its ecosystems, and wildlife. A 1,200 square-foot interactive map of the Delta allows visitors to see how water flows through the region.

The Visitor Center building, completed in 2012, is certified 3 Green Globes by the Green Building Initiative for green building design, engineering, construction, and facility operations. The 5,500 square-foot pre-fabricated building project was partially funded by a $2.5 million grant from the State of California's Proposition 84.
