Yards, parks and gardens

The variety of parks in Helsinki is broad and multifaceted. The styles and values of different eras alternate between districts. The oldest parks were established in the 19th century and the latest ones are currently being built.

The parks are our communal living rooms, offering experiences throughout the year.
