The park is located within an actvie floodplain along the Oyster River. Flooding is most evident along the park's northern portion where a network of watercourses have scoured the forest soils. Forested locations are dominated by douglas-fir and sword fern where soil has accumulated and is most stable. In areas of flooding and soil movement, red alder, salmon berry and skunk cabbage dominate. The water loving black cottonwood enjoys riverbank and watercourse locations.
The park was created at the time of subdivision (1970's).
