Since the park has been repeatedly disturbed, opportunistic exotic plants have invaded the native woodlands, and in some cases, reached possible problem stages. Some of these problem plants are: Japanese honeysuckle, English ivy, kudzu vine, princess tree, ailanthus, bamboo, multi-flora rose, periwinkle and mimosa.
The park is actively working to control these exotic invaders.
