This linear park runs between the main lanes of a downtown boulevard. It is clean, pretty, and appeared safe. I used this park each of the six days that I stayed in Helsinki, including walking to the Viking ferry terminal.

Lovely little park in the city and great to have some ice cream (the one with the cart is great!) and chat on the grass. If want a break from walking/sightseeing, nice thing to do with friends/family during the summer.

The "main" park in Helsinki, absolutely beautiful, especially in summertime time, it connects the busy streets of the city centre and the harbour area.

We enjoyed walking up and down the esplanade. Flowers, fountains, restaurants, buskers -- all the things you want in a leafy urban oasis.

This park contains restaurants and kiosks and is paced between two lanes of traffic, on one of the best boulevards in Helsinki. Stroll down this park and enjoy the lifestyle of Helsinki. And the fountain at the end of the park sometimes foams over.......

The Esplanadi park is popular with locals and tourists. There was a national festival in the park when we were there and it was nice to see people dressed in national costumes. There is a cafe in the park and stalls selling juice and coffee.

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!
