This urban forest not only represents an important place for educational activities, research, and formal and informal environmental education, but also represents a refuge for several groups of organisms such as plants, fungi, lichens, insects, birds (both resident and migratory) and small mammals, many typical of the pre-montane moist forest. Its main objectives are: to preserve a sample of the natural environment characteristic of the Montes de Oca region. To serve as a living laboratory for (formal and informal) teaching and for research. To serve as a refuge for several native flora and fauna species of the area. It has a trail of approximately 400m, which runs through most of the small forest.
