A very nice and old park.  One of the oldest original parks in Helsinki. A comfortable walking destination. On the highest point there is a nice view of the sea. There are also a few good cafes for you to visit near the park. Ursula or Mattolaituri as an example. Carusel is also quite close to Kaivopuisto (Check the opening hours). On... More

Beautiful park walking distance from the centre of Helsinki with beautiful views to the sea. Large enough to find a quiet spot, there are park benches on several locations.

We took a bike ride and also did run towards Kaivopuisto from our hotel (Fabian). It was fabulous to be on the shoreline across the islands watching boats go by.

Kaivopuisto is the area where are many embassies. The park is near the sea and if you like to walk from the city it is not too far. About 10-15 minutes. Just follow the seaside and from the harbor go straight ahead. Then you will see the catholic church and you are in the Kaivopuisto park. Walk in to the... More

It's nice to walk here and by the sea in the summer, stopping at one of the cafés by the sea for a drink.
