We had a great picnic at Kaivopuisto. There are multiple playgrounds some of which are built up on a hill/rocky outcrop. It leads to a great slide! There are formal gardens and... read more

We had a great picnic at Kaivopuisto. There are multiple playgrounds some of which are built up on a hill/rocky outcrop. It leads to a great slide! There are formal gardens and wilder areas and the park is across the street from the water.

Huge park to walk, run, have a picnic or to do anything really. You can walk by gulf, try nice cafes or during night bars/ nightclubs. During summer various events going on.

This is one of the most beautiful parks in Helsinki. There is an elevated ground where you can walk up and sit on the edge for some really beautiful views of the sea and Helsinki in the background lining up the horizon. Lush green and very well landscaped, this park is must to visit to spend some quality time with... More

If you like walking or riding a bike spend some time in the Well Park. It is located by the seashore in a charming Helsinki district. A visible landmark of the park is the observatory on the hill. In case you approach the park walking from the Helsinki port, you will see an interesting statue of a barefoot woman. According... More

One has to take the walk from Kaivopuisto park towards Kauppatori (Market Square). You get the best Panoromic view of Helsinki from here. I will try to attach some photos. Also get a great view of Suomenlinna island, depending on the time you can also get photographs of huge cruise passing by.

Nice park for picnic, walking around and hanging around with friends in summer. It's easily accessible from city centre.

A great place especially when the weather favors a picnic or a sunbath. However, I discourage you from hanging out alone late. Not the safest place in town. The best time to visit is definitely between 10 am and 18 pm.

Kaivopuisto park is the biggest park in the city center of Helsinki. It is easy to reach using tramways nr 2 or nr 3 (it is actually the same tramway route, numbers 2 and 3 just do it in opposite directions), and it is a mere 15 minute walk from the Farmer´s Market. Kaivopuisto houses a popular restaurant/nightclub "Kaivohuone". (As... More

Lovely area, well maintained, perfect place for a walk/run and a coffee, lunch break, picnic. The seaview is fantastic and so are the boats moored by the seaside in Kaivopuisto.
