Vecmokas Manor Park and Lime Tree Alleys


The park of Vecmokas was set up in the first part of the 19th century, when the Vecmokas Manor was owned by the Barons von Oelsen. At the park, local and introduced tree species grew, among them for example, the European larch (Larix decidua), box elder (Acer negundo) and the sycamore (Acer pseudoplanatus), hawthorn (Crataegus alemanniensis), honeysuckle (Lonicera tatarica), silver willow (Salix alba ‘Sericea’), black and red lace (Sambukus nigra and Sambukus racemosa), the Swedish whitebeam (Sorbus intermedia), the Hungarian lilac (Syringa josikaea), common (English) elm (Ulmus glabra) etc.

Even though the former Vecmokas manor park has not been kept up and is now overgrown with local species, it still stands out and attracts attention with several particularly lavish and long lime tree (Tilia x vulgaris) alleys. Three lime tree alleys lead to the manor buildings. One of them is the longest Dutch lime tree alley in Latvia (around 1 km).
