I beg all my readers to check out this expansive, lush urban park on the southern end of central Helsinki. It’s moderately hilly, with grassy areas for picnics and benches for people-watching and admiring the harbor vistas. I drive a power wheelchair, and most of the trails within the park are completely wheelchair-accessible. Anyone of any background will find something to appreciate here. Plus, it’s free!

Do yourself a huge favor and visit the Kaivopuisto ASAP. Take lots of pictures, and have fun!

The area of Kaivopuisto is about 16 hectares. You find many statues, flowers, old trees, beautiful sitting places, Kaivohuone Night Club, two playgrounds and a public toilet there. If you walk to the seaside, you find some nice cafeterias, too. If the weather is hot, it is nice to walk in the shade of trees.

In the southwest corner of the city, Kaivo is a popular hangout for the locals. Lots of picnics and musicians in the good weather. This seaside neighborhood is one of the oldest parks in the city.

Kaivopuisto is one of the oldest parks in the city. The seaside neighborhood is also home to old villas and several embassies. It is known as a diplomat district.

At the highest point of the park is the yellow Ursa observatory from 1926.

The vast lawns are popular areas to sunbathe or to have picnics. However, gooses have invaded them. In the summertime, many concerts are held in the park.

Besides the many cafes, you can visit Kaivohuone, a legendary restaurant, and nightclub dating from the 1830s.

The most exquisite place to live in Helsinki is by the park among the many embassies. Architectural styles of most periods over the last 150 years are present, among the oldest the wooden villas, the Mannerheim museum among them and Art Nouveau apartment buildings. The park itself is a large area with the Observatory on top of the hill and steep rocks facing the sea. A good location for the monument of Finnish born explorer Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld, who with the steam ship Vega made the first ever journey through the Northeast Passage along the Arctic Sea all the way to the Bering Straits already in 1878-79.

It's a very large, beautiful park located nearby Olympia Terminal (you can either walk here following the coastline or use the trams). Walking around this place is very peaceful and nice - probably gets crowded in summer, but I'm just wild guessing.
What I'm not guessing is that being by the coast, it does get windy, but in my opinion is completely worth it

This is actually one of the most popular parks in the city and many people spend quality time in their own ways. It was a hot summer day when I visited, so there were some getting a tan by lying here and there. There are some benches to relax, but this place is mostly for those who want the sun!
