The article presents certain milestones in the construction and landscaping history of the park belonging to the Szentkereszthy Manor House in Arcuş (Covasna County), a 19th century arboretum, listed as such on the 2004 and 2010 List of Historic Buildings, and also – largely due to its continuous use – one of the best-preserved historic residential parks in Transylvania. The article also describes the main built and landscaping elements of the ensemble, the relationships between them, as well as those with the settlement and surrounding landscape, as they were observed by the author in the summer of 2009, in an attempt to outline a short summary of the current situation of the landscape elements.
