The nature reserve is located on a 400ha former coal mining area. "Ings" means this is a stretch that is regularly flooded by the adjacent River Aire. It consists of numerous lakes and wetlands.
It is also one of 10 bird sanctuaries in England. In the park several observation stations are created, which are equipped with some very decorative signs.
The paths through the reserve are well maintained.
