According to the Parks Canada website, the park, which consists of a 16km long point of land which juts out into Lake Erie, "resounds with migrating song birds in the spring, hums with cicadas in the summer, flutters with Monarch butterflies in the fall and is a peaceful place of reflection in the winter."
