There are many habitats for wildlife in the woodland, grassland meadows, pond and Siston Brook.
Species breeding in the plantations and scrub include bullfinch, chiffchaff, song thrush, garden warbler, whitethroat and lesser whitethroat.
Skylarks breed just outside the site and sparrowhawk, kestrel and buzzard often feed over the park.
Winter visitors include redwing, fieldfare and siskin.
Dragonflies and damselflies are found around the lake such as emperors, black-tailed skimmers and four-spotted chasers. Common frogs and common toads both breed on the site.
Warmley Forest Park lies on the site of an old clay quarry.
Earth banks and ponds are filled in quarries and are evidence of this industrial activity.
Alongside the forest park are the remains of the Dramway and former Midland Railway line between Bristol and Bath which is now the Bristol and Bath Railway Path.
The site has a permanent orienteering trail.
