The four hectare park sits on the north branch channel, which divides the former Bigford farm. The site is owned by South Nation Conservation (SNC). The east part of the site was planted with pine trees by SNC, and under planted with Walnuts as well as other hardwood, by Irene Woolford Broad and other volunteers.
The west half of the site is planted largely with Oak trees and contains one of Ontario's three Butternut archives, (testing for resistence to Butternut canker), Nut Pine, Ginko, Hickory and other related species. There are over 25 species of trees and shrubs planted on the site.
The Pioneer Homesteads Project recognizes settler families with plaques that are mounted on glacial boulders and on plinths in front of trees.
