It s Helsinki's park to spend the first of May barbecue and not only that day. It overviews the sea and the park itself is graceful, it hostes the Unasaari observatory. Have a look from the top of the park you won t regret it.

Good spot for a picnic or a stroll. Big park with sea view on the other side and city view on the other.

It is a really nice park to spend a few hours when the sun is shinning. There is also a beach close were you can go for a walk or even swimming in the summer... Close to this parks are small islands with a fireplace to make a barbecue.!!

A very romantic walk by the sea! I used to I've there for a year and in the good season the quiet walk by the shore was the most relaxing time I can remember.

Well worth a little walk through this park and up to the top for views across to the city and out to the islands just off the mainland.

This is just not a park. This is the most famous and nicest park in Helsinki. Location is great and being next to sea makes it a place you cannot miss when coming to Helsinki. It has several cafes around located in front of sea and those are the perfect way to end a visit to park (Ursula, Carrousel,...).

If you want to enjoy outdoor life in Helsinki this is a park to visit. It is located in the upper class area in south Helsinki and is a wide open area next to the sea. In the winter you can slide down the hill with your sledge and in the summer you can enjoy open air concerts for free.... More

Visit during summer and you can see loads of people having fun, the running ones, couples having ice creams, bikers,hikers, swimmers, sailers and the sunbathers. Good cafes around.
