Park Court Natural Area encompasses an area of moderately rolling uplands with a steep embankment along the Pembina River. The uplands are mainly aspen or aspen-balsam poplar forest and the river embankment varies from sparsely vegetated, eroding cliffs to more gently-sloping areas with aspen forest or shrublands. The westerly portion on the Pembina river is incised by a deep ravine with white spruce-paper birch-balsam poplar forest. There is good wildlife habitat, with reports of elk using the area and abundant bird species (Alberta Parks web site, 2012).
A 2021 site visit to the southeast corner of the eastern portion noted that off-highway vehicles have caused considerable disturbance to the area . The land separating the two portions is mostly private .
