Habitat: At one time the park was virtually all cleared grazing land, but over the past 30 years much of the area has been revegetated. Areas of the park have developed into a visually attractive urban forest, with cover over much the area of both indigenous and non-indigenous shrubs and trees. Very little of the original native vegetation remains, there are a few remnant stands of grey box (Eucalyptus microcarpa), golden wattle (Acacia pycnantha) and drooping sheoak (Allocasuarina verticillata).
