The parks are known for their beauty, collections of rare, often exotic, plant species, as well as old monumental trees.

The small village in the commune of Bojadła (Zielona Góra County) is situated on the right bank of the central Oder, in the Kargowa Valley (Kotlina Kargowska).   Klenica lies on the verge of the Oder cutoff, where and old, primeval forest grows. The primeval forest was landmarked in the times of Radziwiłł Family. The place is called the Radziwiłł Tal - the Radziwiłł Valley.  An old, forgotten lane of plane trees planted by order of Princess Dorothea of Courland is located in the area.
