Downstream from Oblu village behind virgin soils on the right bank of the Atla River is Õrde spring which is under protection. To reach the spring, a bridge has been built on the river. Before the bogs were drained, the spring was affluent, now the water level of the spring has somewhat decreased. The spring water flows throw a small stream to the Atla River.
According to folkloric tales in the past during drought people from seven parishes were able to get water from the spring. The spring had been so deep that nobody was able to reach the bottom. When the water level was low, a long ladder made of oak was built in the spring. During the Northern War the bells of Juuru church were hidden in the spring.
