This was a pleasant surprise on our visit to Helsinki. It is quite expansive and well laid out. The purpose built administrative/research building is reminiscent of a palace. Unfortunately the building isn't open to the public. There is also a small cafe.

It could do will a lot of TLC, but still of interest to visit. Just make sure you approach from the front. We didn't and had to walk the long way around!!

We visited in December so not much to see but still a nice little walk ...can imagine it would be beautiful in summer when all the flowers are in bloom. The green house has plenty of different plans to see.

I found this little gem when I walked back to hotel. It was free of charge. It is small, but very lovely. It is a family friendly park. It is really for everyone.

Helsinki can be a bit gloomy in Autumn. The greenhouses are a nice way to escape the grey and see a decent variety of plants from around the world.

I loved it. Only a small amount was under construction while I was there, and it was all outside. The glasshouses are beautiful and the variety of plants inside them is amazing.
