Oru Park
About
The Oru Park and grand palace in the beautiful valley of the Puhajogi River was built by Grigori Jelissejev – one of the wealthiest men in 19th century Russia. In 1935, three industrialists bought the palace and park and presented it to President Pats for his summer residence. The palace was totally destroyed during the Second World War. Today you can walk in the well-marked and well-maintained park, look at various species of trees and shrubs, explore the Silver Spring Cave, as well as enoy the sea view and the sunset from the petrel nest. Interesting fact: the Oru Park Promenade organized annually in August has become a tradition.

We walked from 2 bear gates via linden avenue. Nice walk, not very long, to the old manor place. I really recomend virtual reality tour, takes things to another level.

Very nice walk through the Gates of 2 Bears, along oak alley and then all the sudden - perfect garden with breathtaking view. Well spent time.

Once upon a time there was the magnificent palace Oru surrounded by a huge park. Sadly the palace was bombed in WO II, but the lovely park remains. It is a very picturesque park with old trees, a small river flowing through a valley. The old palace square has fountains, flowerbeds. From this square you have nice views over the valley and towards the sea. I visited the park on a warm summer evening, but I think the park is worth a visit in a every season.

Took a late evening walk around this park, he views were amazing out to sea . The flower gardens were well looked after and the smell of the roses 💐. It does not take long to walk around but well worth the visit.

Very atmospheric place. Sad that the castle did not survived. We can only imagine how beautiful it was.
Plan there at least 1h walk.

I must visit when you're in the area. Beautiful place to walk and have a picnic. It is going to be quite a long walk to go everywhere. The nature and the views are stunning.

It's an amazing attraction, you can walk around the park for hours, see amazing nature, stop at the cafe, play at the children's playground and go to the beach. There is everything for everyone. You can stay at the Toila Spa hotel and go to the famous Toila Baths.

The park shows you the history of this part of Estonia, there are some ruins and gorgeous nature. It's suitable for families with young children and wheelchair users. You can easily spend the whole day in the park as there are things to do.

Located in eastern Estonia definitely worth paying a visit. Next door to a very popular local spa complex on a clean seaside. Park is quite big so make sure you wear comfy shoes, if visited in summer don't forget to take bikinis with you as after a nice stroll in green one of the paths will lead you to a clean pebble beach. Castle buildings have been bombed during war, but the park is full of astonishing flowers, balconies and terraces. Plan for at least 3 hr visit. There's places to chill, to eat, to sunbathe.

Great if you are an explorer and like to capture nature.Walk slow and steady following the map and you can get some great shots.Highly recommended for getting yourselves refreshed after a tiring week.Carry some snacks and juices which can come handy if you are hungry or thirsty as the park is huge.There is a pebble beach on the other side of the park which is extremely nice and views of the sea are awesome.
Great for capturing sunset.
