The park in Vana-Vastseliina was established in 1830 by the then owner of Vastseliina Manor Guido Reinhold von Liphart, who designed a beautiful species-rich 8-hectare park. The bandstand has been preserved, where folk festivals take place. Bird lovers will be delighted by the rare species nesting in old tree cavities. You can also admire Estonia's fastest-flowing Piusa River.
In 2016, 25 new trees were planted in the park, one of them in honour of the Lipharts.

The 15 km long hiking trail of Piusa River valley starts from the park.

The manor park can be reached from Vastseliina Episcopal Castle by coming down a romantic staircase or from the highway a little further away.
