Nothing special. A tiny strip of grass in a city full of much better parks and things to see. No reason at all to go there.

For both tourists and locals, this is a nice park in the heart of the city, surrounded by restaurants and shops. Great to walk around, relax and play. As we walked through the park towards the market, lost and looking for Tourist Information Center, two young girls wearing "How may I help you?" vests came to our rescue. Information center... More

Ensure you take a stroll through this peaceful and pleasant park in the middle of Helsinki. Maybe even a picnic lunch!!

This is the social and cultural center of Helsinki. Great place to get a Finnish coffee or beer and if you are there in the early a.m. the President can often be seen having his morning coffee at a table. You can also buy local delicacies like reindeer sausage.

This is Helsinki's heart! Here you will find everythng for a relaxed day, you could start with breakfast, then take a boat ride to the river, come back, take a walk, listen music, visit galleries, buy some great design pieces, have lunch, have some coffee, buy clothes and/or have dinner.

nicea area, and also for a nice walk, bar & restaurants around. Situated in the heart of Helsinki, the Esplanade Park serves as a promenade for travellers and a place to relax for tourists and Helsinkians. The park and the Espa Stage host many popular events and artists

Having wandered around the many shops in the city centre, the park is ideally situated to have a rest in the shade of the trees. It does, however, get very busy in the summer months and whilst a seat may not always be available, there is plenty of grass to rest your weary limbs on.

A central place close to the main tourist sites to take the load of your feet. Find a seat in the shade, as it can get very hot, and grab it quickly before someone else does! There are often impromptue music and dance performances.

It's a park, a small one at that. I wasn't too impressed, though it is close to Kaupattori Market and the harbor if you're just looking for a place to lounge for a while between activities.

It felt very European - beautiful tree lined gardens with lovely buildings along the sides before finishing at the harbourside. Worth a slow walk down here.
