This large park is a mix of historic landscape, urban impacts and recovering woodlands as well a being an important center for recreation. Located just across from the Lakewood Amphitheater, it holds an important confluence of the South River and a surprising array of native plants, and remnants of the old growth forest.
An enormous old Sycamore tree, likely a regional champion, can be found after a little hiking near the South River, while tiny 400 million year old plants cling to rocks along its banks. A healthy mix of native hardwoods can be found on the upper slopes in the park and many songbirds find cover in these as well as pockets of forest along the waterways.
