This park is lively and the gardens are beautiful. It is a great place to watch Helsinki go by. There is a delightful little old ice cream house.

I always love walking down the Esplanadi especially on a summer day with all the people having fun, eating and just having a good time. The park leads you right to the Kaupattori by the sea which is spectacular.

This is the gathering place for tourists and locals alike. It was filled with people during our, end of July visit. Lovely flowers in bloom, benches to rest, lawns to sit, ice cream and coffee/tea vendors and people watching.

So great park, for a nice short walk. A lot of benches but most of them occupied. People are sitting on the grass as well. There are few stands to buy coffee and souvenirs.

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!
