Although not a nature sanctuary or conservation area, Dane Park is the only passive wooded park in the Town and serves as exceptional wildlife habitat for plants and animals. It is located on former estate land and contains a variety of volcanic formations including a lava dome that was formed when molten lava was hurled out of an active volcano, and lava pillows that resulted when hot lava flows reached the edge of existing dry land and dropped into the sea. A geology trail with informational signs was established in 2001. A wetland, where dumping occurred over the years, has been considerably cleaned up by the Town. The wooded parkland has recreational trails, including an all access trail.
