I wanted to visit this park when I was planning for attractions to visit. This wasn't a priority for me but I stumbled upon this area when I was walking randomly near Senate Square and discovered it. It was very beautiful with the Christmas lights,...More

It goes through the centre of the city and is a place to have a rest away from the busy places. Served by several restaurants and bars if you fancy a drink and a meal, though not the cheapest!

Had to stop off for a rest. Was cold but nice to sit in the sun for a spot of people watching. Would love to visit in summertime.

I spent several hours sitting on the grass, there was a nice sunny weather and the park was full of visitors. I do not remember that I felt somewhat relaxed and relieved of all the worries and problems ...

This several blocks-long park is surrounded by some of the cities most exclusive shops. It offers fine dining, street performances, and a nice walk down to the Helsinki waterfront market. The market runs year around and there are crafts, food, and souvenirs for all tastes.

Just walk a little from Market Square and you are strolling through this small park in the Heart of Helsinki. It is not too crowded at this time of year, but it has its charm.

Esplanadi Park is a lovely place for a stroll. It is lined with cafes and shops. It's a great option to get from various points of interests, from Stockmann Department store to the seaside.

I do believe where the cruise ports you just keep walking west a couple of blocks and you will be in the middle of Esplanadi. Lots of shops, snacks and salons. Public market at the port, too. Local food and art/crafts. Enjoy!
