About
Tammsaare Park is located in the centre of Tallinn, in the immediate vicinity of the Estonia Theatre. In 1896, a vacant lot here was paved and it became the new site of Tallinn's market, which was formerly located on Town Hall Square. Exhibitions were also held next to the market square. In 1903-1905, it was home o a giant wood "Interimstheater" -- a barn-type hall that was a venue for theatre performances and cinema screenings. In 1976, the park was redesigned, in 1978, a statue of the writer A. H. Tammsaare was placed in the centre of the park (designed by I. Soans and R. Luup) and in 1981, a sculpture, Merineid (Sea-Maiden), was added (E Viies). Interesting to know: - there are over 40 different woody plants in the park.

This is a lovely park, located next to the entrance to the old town.
It features a nice memorial for Anton Hansen Tammsaare, the famous writer.

This park is pretty and well-located (within easy walking distance to Old Town, and to where we were staying), but there was more pavement than we liked, as opposed to grass that we were wanting. Also, the backs of the benches were not very comfortable to lean against.

It got very busy in the late afternoons, so if people-watching is your goal, this is a good park. If you're looking for a quieter place with more grass, I'd go somewhere else.

This park is centrally located between the Estonia Theatre and Viru shopping center with the legendary skyscraper hotel Viru from 1972.

We have walked through this park at least hundreds of times. During summertime, it is a lush park with many people sitting on the benches.

The park is named after Estonian author A. H. Tammsaare. In 1978, a statue for him was erected in the center of the park to mark his 100th birthday.

Located in the center of Tallinn, between Old Town and New, Tammsaare Park provides a lovely path from Medieval to Contemporary worlds. Leaving Old Town through the Viru Gate, follow the path to the left and you get to the KGB Museum in the Hotel Viru. Take the path to the right and you get to the National Theater. When we visited the path to the left had a fascinating photo exhibit of individuals and families encompassing the many ethnic groups among Estonia’s population. The path to the right took us past several interesting sculptures, including a statue of Estonia’s best-known writer and namesake for the park, A. H. Tammsaare, and a very intriguing half buried statue of a Mermaid.

We passed through this park four times during our stay at Tallinn. It's a rare gesture to design and dedicate the sprawling park in memory of A.M.Tammsaare (1878-1940), a great Estonian writer whose novels portraying love,life, strong social message, left indelible impressions on people of the country. This aesthetically designed park, opened in 1978, on the occasion of 100th anniversary of birth of the legendary writer , contain a monument of Tammsaare, sculptures in forest gardens, a freedom monument, and pavilion cafe. This connect old town area that Vuru Mall and the main streets. A must visit to feel the rich literary legacy of Estonia.

Leaving the old town and heading to Viru shopping center you will probably walk through this park. I found the posters of the Estonian people to be very interesting, although i do not know if they are there permanently. The park has been around for over 100 years and originally had a concert hall which burnt down and never replaced. There are plenty of benches where you can sit, lights at night and a good place for people watching. A statue of Mr. Tammsarre was erected in the middle of the park commemorating his hundredth birthday.

This small green space is right between a busy street and the Opera House. It is dominated by a rather moving monument to the 1905 revolution with a wounded man, brave woman, and clinging child. It is actually quite heroic, but our tour guide said that locals call it the “Taxi please, my husband is drunk again” memorial. There is a back entrance to Old Town just across the street from the memorial, so you can walk along Viru Valjak, visit the monument, and continue with your tour of Old Town.

Worth a quick visit if at the Viru Gate and heading into the new city. It is quick and easy to do, it is a pretty standard small park.

Not many tourist know Tammsaare Park, although many of them walk there. Next to famous Viru Hotel and Theatre and near Old Town. Summer time they have ice cream kiosks, buskers, artists etc. Night time lots of drunks, so be careful.

Very small park near the Old Town and Viru Square. Nothing much around except the statue. If you are run out of time, just skip it.
