In winter, deer, muskrats, coyotes and foxes are seen occasionally in daylight; especially when the river is frozen. In fact, we get pretty well everything you would expect in the countryside, except for bears and wolves since the river valley acts as a wildlife corridor.
Even in daylight, few people use the park. Although there is a large population surrounding it, most people just aren’t interested. At night, especially in colder weather and with longer hours of darkness, people are even more scarce and wildlife is able to relax a little more.
