The park was founded in 1912 due to the efforts of the Orenshtein family based on the natural mixed forest. The core is formed by 100-200 year old giant trees – oaks, lime trees, ash trees, maples, fir trees. Their protection appeared sound for foreign guests – slender North-American fir trees and cedars, as well as japonicas. When visitors go upward from the old part along the lime alley their attention will be drawn by a group of Manchurian aralias. This tree is also called "damned tree”, "thorn tree” and "Far-East palm”. And that’s right as its beauty is protected by cruelty. Its leaves and inflorescences the length of which reaches almost one meter are densely covered with long burs. The tree shape really makes it similar to the palm-tree. The Manchurian aralia, a sister of ginseng, is an important medicine plant.

The park area is 17.5 hectares with 980 various species and forms of trees and other plants more than 70% of which are exotic. The territory has two ponds, botanical square, nursery garden with the area of 5 hectares, artificial Carpathian landscape and open yards with deer, pheasants, guinea fowls, peacocks and wild ducks
