The Palmse park covers over 210 ha of land and consists of several different parts – regular park, landscape park, and forest park. In the mid-19th century, a large park was created in the natural forest growing behind the ponds. The park was designed in such a way that the landscape’s varied profile with rivers, streams, and Oruveski reservoir with its small islets were incorporated beautifully . The park was criss-crossed with many roads and paths, which had the total length of 36 versts (38.4 km).
