The Park covers an area of 50 hectares and contains a variety of habitats and a rich diversity of wildlife which includes a number of locally and nationally rare invertebrates. Parts of the site are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) or Local Wildlife Site (LoWS).
The Essex Grazing Project is working in partnership with Basildon Council to graze three grassland areas that were restored from scrub between 2012-15 as part of a scheme to improve habitats for Thames Terrace Invertebrates which was grant funded by the Greater Thames Marshes Nature Improvement Area.
