I first learned of this grove at the start of August during a weekend trip to the region of Latgale.

The oak grove is located aside from Ezernieki – Andzeļi road, there is a small parking lot, trail, informational stand, and recreation area with footbridge, with a view on the Lake Ežezers North bay and islands.
