Definitely worth a visit when in Kotka. The park has a lot of different flowers, plants and trees, as well as a lovely waterfall. Great for a short walk to relax.

Sapokka is definitely a must see place for a Kotka visit. It is exceptionally nice park in an old industrial city like Kotka. Small waterfall, paths and art work around the garden. Well maintained.

I was happily surprised how beautiful water garden was. You can easily walk around it and climb few steps up to the hill. There are various kind of flowers and plants. Very colourful and worth visiting!

This park is best when visited in summer. The flower blossom and water birds are really worth of seeing. Also the big waterfall in the middle of the park looks breathtaking. You can also take stairs to the top of the waterfall.

Water falls are the eye catchers on Sapokka. Lovely spot to relax up on top of the water fall. Nice gardens on Korka boat harbour next to Maretarium. Must visit!

Hello Marie M. From Helsinki to Kotka you can take a bus - there are several daily buses to Kotka from Helsinki. From Kotka bus station it is only 10 minutes walk to Sapokka Water garden.
