It is a very nice place to relax on a seat and take in the richness of nature. The park is a haven for various types of warblers that make their nests there to rear their young. The vegetation on the walls is very special. It is one of the few places in the Netherlands where you can find the arrow skew. The many flowerbeds also attract a great many insects and butterflies.

The park is a treasure trove of cultural and archeological objects. Many of these (monk cells, medieval houses and cloisters) are underground. One monk cell has been dug up and and can be seen when you walk the pavement. A few wayside chapels from the nineteenth century are spread over the area. The park is also embellished by various modern and old sculptures. But above all there is the bronze artwork The Road to Reconcliation.
