Walk around this area provides beutiful scenes over the small area by boat harbour. The path takes you around and up to place where you can see various building stones used in Finland. View from up is beautiful. The walk is short and pleasant.

This is perfect place for a walk specially in summertime when all the flowers give you a colourful view aside the small bay with waterfall and rocks. Surely a place to show any visitors in Kotka.

Every time I am Kotka, I visit here. I like to come at different times of the year as the various plants and shrubs are at their best at different times.

Near the Sapokka guest harbour, there is an old bay that has been dredged in the late nineties. The bay was closed with a pedestrian bridge to a pond. At that time also flowers and trees were planted. Later also different pieces of art in alloy/steel are placed along the shoreline. One of the most attractive things is an artificial... More

It's a very nice park with cute artificial waterfall. All that said, I am surprised it is #1 attraction in the area - there are more interesting and unique things there.

Very beautiful park with waterfall, beautiful flover and plants, paths, pools, statues etc. Walking in this park stimulates all your senses. Plants names are on labels and there are several benches for visitors.

The citycenter is not very far but here you can enjoy the sounds of the nature, water and birds. The park is beautiful and blooming differently week after week.
