The article presents several landmarks from the history of the buildings and landscape designs of the Wass-Bánffy Castle Park in Gilau (Cluj County), a 19th century arboretum, the preserved elements of which are dating probably from the middle, respectively from the end of the 19th century. It is listed on the List of Historic Buildings from 2004 and 2010. The castle ensemble is currently in a degraded state, the vegetation has grown wild, with few elements preserved from the old landscape design. The article describes the main building and landscape design elements, the relationships established between them, their relationship with the settlement and surrounding landscape, as they were observed by the author in the summer of 2008, in an attempt to sketch a brief inventory of the site’s current layout.
