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.

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.
