Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Porvoo has more write-ups in the travel literature that Kotka but it should be the other way around and it is not that much further out of Helsinki. It is a really nice town and this park is great. At the top of the park there are polished samples of every granite in Finland. Simply amazing the stone that comes out of Finland. There are bronze animal statues and the water fall is peaceful. If you continue to drive along the water there are beautiful stopping points where the forest meets the water. We really enjoyed visiting this city. We also drove out to the point of land where there is a large bronze statue and you can look back at the city. Very nice place to visit.

    Sibelius Park is centrally located at the start of Lehmuspromenadi. It is part of the Kotka Sculpture Promenade.

    Hotel Seurahuone is located next to it. We had a good view of the park from our hotel room.

    The park is at its best in the summertime when it turns into a green oasis with old trees and beautiful flower beds.

    A children's playground is located in the park.

    This park is located above the railway station of Kotka Port.

    The park has got its name from the fire tower, which was built in 1895 but burned down in 1911.

    From the observation platform, you have a great view of the port.

    Here you can find many statues and sculptures, such as an anti-air defense monument and a sculpture for port workers.

    In wintertime, you cannot admire the azaleas, for which the park is famous. They at their most beautiful in early summer.

    But you can see the Planetarium which is a model of the Solar System at the scale of 1: 2 000 000 000.

    There are also exercise equipment, a playground, and some sculptures.
