The River Nedern winds its way through the park, and the wildlife pond is home to a variety of wildfowl.

The Castle's tower is one of the best places to view the Severn estuary. The castle was built on a spur of sandstone to control the River Nedern flowing nearby. The river was once a tidal estuary navigable for several miles upstream.
