This landscaped garden is one of the prettiest, best-preserved, and best-kept parks in Lithuania's coastal region. In 1897 Count Felix Tiskevicius founded this park around the palace built the same year. The park was designed by the famous French landscape architect and botanist Édouard François André‚ (1840–1911), who spent three summers in Palanga with his son Ren Eduard Andr (1867–1942) supervising the park's construction. They were assisted by the Belgian gardener Buyssen de Coulon.
