The 19.2-acre site was initially divided into four units: oak woodland, hay field, old field and brush land. Land records from the 1830s indicate the Bock Forest was oak savanna. Since this time, portions of the site were used as an active hay field and forested area.

Today the site is a combination of oak woods, oak savanna and prairie with a 1.2-mile hiking trail that connects to the Pheasant Branch Conservancy SE Trail of Pheasant Branch Conservancy.

There is an information kiosk near the south entrance. The Bock Community Garden is located in the southeast corner of the prairie area.
