The park is a stream valley park comprised of pasture, open fields, woods, hedgerows, cultivated fields and floodplain. This diverse habitat makes it an excellent area for wildlife. There are many species of raptors such as the Red-tailed Hawk, Kestrel, and Great Horned Owl, which prey on a healthy population of small mammals such as rabbits, deer mice, and meadow voles. Deer and fox are also plentiful. Song birds which can be seen in the park include the Baltimore Oriole, Bobolink, Meadowlark, Indigo Bunting, Eastern Bluebird, and many others. The Belted Kingfisher and Great Blue Heron are often seen around the stream.
