The University of Waikato's Centre for Biodiversity and Ecology Research (CBER) provides scientific advice on plantings at the park and water quality of the lake, for example. CBER has set up sample plots within the existing plantings to monitor growth rates. Postgraduate students often undertake work at the park as part of their studies for the university.
