This park was first built for the rich in the early 1900's. to promenade and enjoy themselves. Eventually poorer people were also allowed to use the park. It is located in the middle of the district, with expensive shops, some restaurants, cafes and hotels. We came in the Autumn, so saw the leaves changing colour. At one end of the park is a splendid restaurant, cafe and bar. On our last evening we ate a splendid meal here. Opposite this is a bandstand.

Walking down the avenue of trees there are several statues of people, who have contributed something to Helsinki. At the far end there is a modern theatre building, which learns plain from the outside. The park breaks up the monotony of buildings and you are close to nature as you walk along it.

Probably the most cosmopolitan place in Helsinki, busy with people shopping, looking for cafes/restaurants. Very nice place for a walk in the downtown, mini park between two streets that have a lot to offer

Well thought out by city planners, the park provides a welcome green well within the city limits.
Well kept and the trees are quite magnificent. We enjoyed walking through and it was very clean and tidy. No litter.

This Central Park is very pretty. The trees are a welcome addition given the lack of trees in general on the streets of Helsinki. There are cafes to sit and people watch and the borders of the park are edged with fine hotels, restaurants/ cafes and shops.

The Esplanadi Park is a very nice pedestrian area in the city center, several sculptures help to make this place even more beautiful. There are a lot of cafes, restaurants, bars, very nice stores and boutiques and even a market, close to the Cathedral and is a nice place to spend your time walking along or sitting in a bench to look people pass by, we enjoyed our stay in Helsinki and will come back again. We also visited the Rock Church and the Sibelius monument.
