One of the oldest parks in the city, Kaivopuisto features hiking trails and vast green lawns, as well as recreational complexes and cafes. Stretching across 45 hectares (111 acres), the park sits between the urban zone and the open sea. As you walk along its numerous paths, you'll encounter art in unexpected places. Some trees contain extremely detailed carved faces, while colorful wooden birds adorn tall poles. As you pause to sit on one of the numerous benches here, notice that each has poem engraved into the surface. A visit to Kaivopuisto represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Helsinki road trip planner to plot your vacation.

What a pleasant park. It is green, open and wide, with lots of space for kids to run around and benches to seat on. The sea view at the southern edge is a must.
We were there in the winter and enjoyed the park. Everything was frozen (including the see). It is a nice place to go if you are not familiar with the see in the “solid state” to experience it.
