The founder of the park, Count Aspremont, was instrumental in developing it from both the architectural and botanical points of view. He added many exotic plants to the local flora. In order to restore the park to what it had looked like in earlier centuries, inventory research of the flora and fauna was carried out in 1997. It showed that there were 97 species of vertebrates living in the park, including European tree frog, grass snake, peregrine falcon, and several species of bats. The flora includes lily of the valley, bastard balm, meadow buttercup and green figwort. They grow in three different habitats: mesophilic meadow, woodland and water meadow. Today, there are 38 species of deciduous and coniferous trees in the park, principally European ash, European alder and field maple; rarer species are southern catalpa, European yew and London plane.
