    Would recommend visit in summer
    Beautiful big garden. You can go easily there by walk (approximately 30 minutes from Tallinn city center) or by bus. Would recommend visit in summer when flowers bloom. There is also palace (we didn't visited).

    Peaceful Haven Half an Hour from the City
    We loved our 2 hours meandering around Kadriorg Park. We didn't go into the art gallery but enjoyed the living art of the colourful gardens and grounds. Just a shame that the walk out and back from the old city was accompanied by major road-works, but I guess that kept the traffic at bay. Well worth an hour or 2 of your time.

    Lovely green space with flowers, shrubs, trees and water features and places to see. A lovely break from the busy town.
    Well maintained park with lots of flowers, shrubs, trees and grassy areas. It was fun to see robot lawn mowers working the green areas as I wandered around in this peaceful setting. Gardeners were also hard at work to keep the area looking so nice. Excellent paths for walks in every direction. Some attractive water features add to the look. Nice and peaceful but not that far from the town, or the coast road. Kids areas and museums are nearby. Plus you have the art museum with its beautiful house and manicured flower displays a short walk. From here I walked down to the coast road and walked back to town. Good work out.

    A full day well spent
    This park is swell worth a visit. The palace itself is beautiful and has some interesting art but we were more interested in Peter the Greats house which is very well displayed and explained. We also enjoyed a stroll down to the Russian monument by the sea. A full day ( including KUMU) very well spent.

Very unsafe for young children with no barriers to prevent them running directly into the recessed water ditches and lake! The playground was decent enough but the small fairground next door was staffed by extremely unfriendly and unhelpful staff (despite the extortionate €4/ for single ride cost)- we waited patiently after paying €16 for over 5 minutes, with no one attending or updating us- they seemed unperturbed when we requested a full refund as we had two distressed young children who had been excited and then disappointed. The park & museum itself is OK, but nothing special, Japanese garden not well maintained. Expectation vs. Reality very different. I rarely post unless I have a positive or poor experience that others should consider. If this is the best park attraction then I’m going to be very dissatisfied, was hoping for much better than UK…

Nice palace surrounded by plenty of park spaces to even international gardens. Free entry to walk around the parks but ticket required for visiting the Kadriorg Palace.

We walked here from Old Tallinn and it was nice to walk through inner city subruban Tallinn prior to arriving at Kadriorg Park. We continued our walk north towards the waterfront where its has been upgraded to be more pedestrian-friendly all the way back to the ferry/cruise terminal.

As my lady friend's name is Catherine, we just had to go to Kadriorg which mean's "Catherine's Palace". The gardens are beautiful as is the swan pond (although we didn't see any swans the 2 days we visited; There were some nice ducks, however). The interior of the palace is a wonderful example of 18th Century Russian design. Lots of interesting artwork. For us the portrait of Catherine Orlova (Catherine the Great) was a big highlight. Good to spend a few hours walking the grounds and yo can see all that is inside the building in 2 hours or less.

This 70-hectare park is Estonia's most spectacular palace and city park. Peter the Great started to build it in 1718.

The most popular place for walking is the rectangular Swan Pond, which is full of flower beds. The promenade leading to the stunning palace starts from here.

In 2011, Kadriorg Park received a truly wonderful addition in form of the Japanese garden designed by Japan's renowned landscape designer Masao Sone.

Kadriorg Park is home to several museums: Estonia's largest visual arts museum Kumu, the Kadriorg Art Museum in the palace building, and the Mikkeli Art Museum in the kitchen building next to the palace.

Kadriorg Park is a gorgeous place that's perfect for taking a walk in or reading a book. I attended a benefit concert for Ukraine that was held here and also was able to dress up in historic costumes with friends for free outside of the palace. There are many playgrounds for children, at least one cafe, nice ponds that you rent a rowboat for, and well maintained gardens. If you're in the area make sure to stop by!

During our stay in Tallin´s city centre, we needed some time in the nature. We took the tram nr.1 and went to the Kardriorg Park. We admired the great autumn scenery and we have also spent some time in the Japanese Garden, which really looks amazing. Definitely a recommendation

Very nice park. I liked especially the Japanese garden because I saw very lovely squirrel there. Unfortunately in April the flowers were not present in the garden and the fountain was not working. I found it hard to find public WCs in the garden, I asked employees and they did not know. I was able to find one in a cafe by the entrance. A code for the door is necessary but I asked the employee and he gave me kindly the code. I think this is something that must improved in the park since it is so big. They should have public bathrooms or they should have signs indicating where they are because I did not see any. I only saw signs for the museums.

The park is clean and beautiful. Also safe. There’s a Japanese garden/lake worth visiting and the museum is quite cute. Not big but interesting for spending half an hour at least. You don’t need a cab to get there. It’s ridiculously close to the city centre.
