A beautiful walk in this park is worth to be done. Next to the cruise harbor and full of shops, if you like it… Well, actually full of seagulls too.

Not overly impressed - huge numbers of tourists, crowded, nothing that caused a "wow". Not sure what more to say. Again, little history provided through booklets, tourist center.

Small, but centrally located park. Beautiful location to people watch and catch your breath on a sunny day.

I have been in Helsinki twice during summer (about to be three times), but greatly look forward to simply strolling the Esplanade and enjoying the city. Window shop, find a place for a good coffee, perhaps listen to the musicians that always seems to be...More

Nice park with beautiful landscaping. Walking paths are wide and well maintained. Several places to get a drink or cup of coffee. Most have outside seating.

This is a lovely place to wander around and enjoy all the green spaces. Lovely place to have a picnic on a summer's day. A little oasis in the heart of Helsinki

Nice park to walk through! Restaurants and cafeterias. Sometimes live music on the outdoor stage. A park where people actually gather!

What a lovely park just beside the market place. In truth less a park more a slice of park. Gardens are beautifully maintained, ice cream selling house, buskers and crowds.

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!
