  • Nice walk on the Baltic Sea coast on the Gulf of Finland; There is a nice cafe where you can drink a hot beverage

  • Went here for a family ride on a sled in winter. Very beautiful place, especially if you get to the top of the mountain, offers spectacular panoramic views of the Bay. The street was -11, the waves were strong from the wind and over the water raised steam, very beautiful and unusual. Slides for sledding are not very large, sled-ice-boats to have special, which are sold in almost all shopping centres and cost about 8 euros, it is ledjanka, which is equipped with special polozvijami like that of Sanok and quickly gaining speed.

  • A very nice place to hang out in Helsinki. It is beautiful and very well mantained. Spending some time in a day with nice weather at this place can be very relaxing.
  • beautiful park with great views but transportation here is difficult
  • Beautiful place at summer time.
  • Beautiful and well maintained, but a few more little shops to buy ice cream and drinks from would not go amiss. Great place to spend a sunny afternoon on a picnic.
  • It is a very nice open area to have fun with your family. Be carefull that around 17:00 the lawn sprinkler systems kicks in...
