The nature reserve area includes the lake, pine and deciduous woodland, seasonally flooded water meadows, summer flowering meadows and hedgerows. All these different habitats attract different animals, birds and insects to the park travelling in along other strips of wild space such as the canal, railway and nearby fields. In 2005 a grant from Living Spaces funded improvements to the lake increasing its attractiveness as a habitat for wildlife. Elsewhere in the nature reserve a new hedge and orchard have been planted, the naturally flooding water meadows have been improved to increase their diversity and bird boxes and new pathways have been installed within the woodland areas, funded by a Breathing Places grant to the Friends of Haslam Park.
