Starting the walk at the Kauppatori Market, it takes about 10-15 minutes to reach park. The path follows the coastline (with upper paths into the park also available), providing... read more

Starting the walk at the Kauppatori Market, it takes about 10-15 minutes to reach park. The path follows the coastline (with upper paths into the park also available), providing numerous photo opportunities as well as passing a few cafes (and various spots suitable for a picnic). Be sure to treat yourself to an ice cream from one of the various... More

If you want to see the archipelago and seaside in Helsinki, this is the place. Nice place to have picnic or you can visit one of several cafes along the seaside

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.

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.
