The park is home to 84 protected species of plants and animals, including wild cotton, mahogany mistletoe and the American crocodile.

Over six miles of nature trails provide a wealth of opportunities for birdwatchers and photographers. Most of the park´s trails are paved and accessible to both bicycles and wheelchairs. Signs along a self-guided nature trail provide information about the park´s ecosystem and wildlife. Ranger-guided tours are also available.
Pets are permitted in the picnic areas, along the sea wall, bike trails and hiking trails. Service animals are welcome in all areas of the park, as required by law.
