It is part of Canberra's Urban Parks and Places, designated as semi-natural open space.

Parts of the Parkland contain remnant native vegetation, and many varieties of birds use the area as a corridor between Cooleman Ridge and Mount Taylor. Kangaroos, reptiles and other wildlife hold an attraction to users of the Parkland. The dam provides a habitat for ducks, frogs and yabbies.

The aims of the group are to restore the remnant native vegetation across the Parkland to:

  • help ensure that the area continues to provide a vegetative and wildlife corridor between Mount Taylor and Cooleman Ridge;
  • secure the various management zones;
  • prevent the misuse of the parkland; and
  • prevent the misuse of the parkland; and
  • create a quiet, safe recreation area.
