This small local park features an impressive granite cliff face and 0.64 hectares of forest in which pines, birches and fir trees grow along with some rowan, aspen and willow trees. There is also a small cluster of rhododendrons in the park. A light renovation of the park was made in 2001, when some of the playground equipment and benches were replaced and the beautiful smooth granite slope was uncovered.
The more traditional park section has been carefully designed. Natural paving stones were laid along the bottom of the cliff face both as an adornment and to help drain water. The park also features exercise equipment that was especially designed for use by young people.
