Look at the new website of City of Helsinki
Helsinki is a green maritime city with a close connection to nature. Multifaceted green areas exhibiting the values and styles of various eras cover one third of the city’s surface area. Constructed parks and well tended green areas are an essential part of the cityscape and enhance the quality of life for the Helsinki residents.
The Street and Park Unit of the Public Works Department is constantly developing and maintaining the network of green areas to meet the needs of the Helsinki residents by being functional, complex and comfortable.
