Parku sāka veidot barons fon Klots 18. gs., tā ierīkošana turpinājās līdz pat 20. gs. Pils priekšlaukums ir regulāra plānojuma ar koptiem zālieniem un celiņiem. Pārējā parka daļā ir brīva plānojuma koku stādījumi ar nelielām laucītēm. DR daļā – sporta laukums, R daļā – dīķis. Parks pielāgots skolas vajadzībām. Stādījumu pamatā ap 23 vietējās koku sugas, daudz liepu un ozolu, arī egles, kļavas, oši, vīksnas un gobas, skaisti lapegļu stādījumi. Sastopami arī atsevišķi eksotiski augi.
