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 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.

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.

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,...).

One of the most beautiful area of Helsinki. Place where to have fun especially during Vappu. Still nice even for a simple walk.
