Very central location. We had a family picnic a few times on the grass. The place is immaculate so please clean up after your mess. Very close to the main Seaport. Many cafes lining both sides. A great place to hang out in nice summer...More

This is a very nice park when you are on the way to the Old Market Hall or the Ferry Station. When we were there there was a food marked and some other events even a quite big stage was build up with some entertainment....More

Always packed with people or food sellers, yet enjoyable! Nice to visit just to walk around and do some shopping in the shops nearby.

This is a beautiful green space in the middle of one of the busiest parts of Helsinki. It is a nice place to simply walk around and enjoy the fresh sea berrze.

trees and flowers abound. Ten minute walk end to end with lots of shops and cafes on either side should the shopping bug strike.

It is a nice park full of flowers where you can relax, having a cup of coffe or a snack. nothing special really. Ομορφο πάρκο γεμάτο λουλούδια για χαλάρωση, πίνοντας καφέ ή τρώγοντας κάποιο σνακ. Οχι κάτι ιδιαίτερο.

This is a great park in the middle of Helsinki with lots of activities. If you are lucky you will see individuals or choirs singing various songs.

An attractive park that gave us shade and seats on a hot Autumn day. People watching is a favourite pastime of ours and here we had ample opportunity while eating tasty sandwiches bought at ‘the old market’. It is well kept with ample rubbish receptacles....More

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!
