This article presents a few highlights from the history of the buildings and landscape design elements of the Károlyi Castle Park in Carei (Satu Mare County), an 18-19th century dendrological park, with traces of landscaped style elements, listed as such as historic monument on the 2004 and 2010 Historic Buildings List. Evolving from a Baroque geometrical style garden (at the middle of the 18th century) into a Romantic landscaped style park (at the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th), the apogee of which is represented by the redesign at the end of the 19th century, the parkhas survived, especially through the many valuable tree specimens. The article describes the main built and landscape design elements and their relationship with the settlement, as they were observed by the author in the spring of 2013, in an essay to sketch a brief summary of the park’s current state.
