The museum preserves the cultural landscape of the Abava River valley.
The museum has a permanent collection of more than 150 outdoor sculptures by an international group of artists. It was the site of the 7th International Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art in 2014.
The park is said to be the residence of the White Princess, a Latvian ghost. She is more often felt than seen, and it said to draw people to come back , or to stay at Pedvale.
The park contains native Latvian plants and animals, to fulfill its mission to preserve the scenic landscapes of the Abava Valley. Blooming wildflowers include lupins, which are in bloom for the summer solstice. Amimals include the hedgehog, Eurasian beaver, and deer. Birds include the stork and cuckoo. 03
