Esplanade park is within the main boulevard of Helsinki. Nice for a stroll. Don't miss the statue with the national anthem: it is in Swedish not in Finnish!

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!
