Arbutus trees are plentiful on the rocky area that forms the park. A split cedar fence lines the perimeter of the park which is along the metamorphosed rocks. There are several places that provide views from this Bear Mountain Florence Lake neighborhood. Harrow Gate Park, Stone Gate Park, Setchfield Park, Arngask Park, Bishops Gate Park and Bear Mountain Parkway Green Space are nearby. There is a short gravel pathway from Alton Lane and a concrete footpath from Stone Gate that connect to the park.
