#4 of 32 in Parks in Helsinki
One of the oldest parks in the city, Kaivopuisto features hiking trails and vast green lawns, as well as recreational complexes and cafes. Stretching across 45 hectares (111 acres), the park sits between the urban zone and the open sea. As you walk along its numerous paths, you'll encounter art in unexpected places. Some trees contain extremely detailed carved faces, while colorful wooden birds adorn tall poles. As you pause to sit on one of the numerous benches here, notice that each has poem engraved into the surface. A visit to Kaivopuisto represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Helsinki road trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • After visiting the Center decided to go to sea and hit in this park. The park itself is unusual, however, that the rocks beneath your feet and the breed. Types of too beautiful of the sea and the islets. You can then go down to the waterfront and slowly to the port

  • This lively wonderland is beautiful throughout the year. As a con, pedestrian routes are not always taken care of and noisy cars ruin some of the experience. Yet I would recommend visiting the park for anyone coming to Helsinki.
  • Nice park at the southern shore. Reminds me a lot of NYC central park but with no people. Good place to go there if you have a dog or want to enjoy views.
  • Good service, tasty pastry and excellent location by the sea. Good parking, except weekends.
  • Huge park with amazing views. Nice long slopes for the kids playing and sliding down.
  • Nice walking place in the heart of the city and by the sea coast. Especially during the few warm summer days it can be rather crowdy with people of all ages taking sunbath. Unfortunately the restaurant inside needs some money to show its self. Good to avoid it during Mayday's eve and midsummer's eve.
