Only about a kilometre from where I was staying, it was nice to get up and walk around the lake in the mornings. Lots of birds around, in the bushes, the reeds & on the water. A most pleasant way to start the day.

What a perfect place to take a walk. Take a walk around the pond in city. Few benches give an opportunity to sit and enjoy the view. Be careful with gooses, they might be mean and steal your food.

Absolutely worth walking or running through if the weather allows such pleasure. Relaxing atmosphere in downtown

A great place to walk around and see swans, ducks, geese and seagulls fighting for sweet buns and old bread. Beautiful piece of sea in the middle of the city.

This is not so much an attraction as just a part of town. There is a nice (3km?) path that goes around the bay, nice for a walk or a run. Swans & other birds often hanging out. Close to Finlandiahouse and the center.

Töölönlahti, the bay area, is popular for walking, biking and running along the water admiring swans and wondering the abundance of Canadian geese. There are big old trees shading the lawns perfect for taking a picnic. The newly built park area is full of gadgets...More

Spot some ducks, SUP's and swans. There's also a couple of Cafe's and a Restaurant to stop by on your tour. Just be aware of the joggers and cyclists.
