Geocache Description:


Slēpnis atrodas Ēbelmuižas parkā, Ziepniekkalnā. Ēbelmuižas parks ir ievērojams ar izcilajiem ozoliem – to skaitā resnāko ozolu Pārdaugavā, kas ir viens no retajiem tik rūpīgi apsaimniekotiem Rīgas kokiem. Ozols šobrīd gan tiek izmantots par atkritumu tvertni! :(
Ozola apkārtmērs - 5,60 m, vecums - aptuveni 300 gadu. Lai gan tas ir pamatīgi apstrādāts ar metāla loksnēm un plāksnēm, tomēr vēl kuplo un zaļo. Taisnības labad jāsaka - beidzamie mērījumi liecina, ka cīņā par Pārdaugavas resnākā ozola titulu šo koku drīz apsteigs daudz veselīgākais Bišumuižas ozols.
Parka austrumu daļā (Zaļenieku iela 21) kā pretstats Ziepniekkalna daudzstāvu namu masīvam vīd dzeltenīgs nams – Ēbelmuižas (Ēbela muižas) dzīvojamā ēka – vienīgā, kas no muižas laikiem ir saglabājusies līdz mūsdienām.


The cache is located in Ebelmuiza (Ebela manor) park in Ziepniekkalns. The park is famous for its oak-trees including the thickest one in Pardaugava. Unfortunately the tree is currently used as a rubbish bin :(
The circumference of the oak is 5,60 m, age - around 300 years. Although it has been thoroughly treated with metal sheets and plates, it still greens. However, the last measurements shows that the much healthier Bisumuiza oak could soon overtake the title of the thickest oak in Pardaugava.
At the East side of the park (Zalenieku street 21) there is a yellowish building - the dwelling house of Ebela manor - the only building of the manor left until nowadays.
