A small cute park at the other end of the town. It has some nice plants and a statue and some seating.

This park is very easy to access as it is located next to the bus station and riverside. There are several benches. Good location for an attraction.

walked through the park on our guided tour. Beautiful in summer with all the flowers blooming, but not much to see. Next to the bus station.

This is a lovely square with a statue of J. L Runeberg. It is easy to pass it on the way up to the Cathedral.

Well, it is just a park. There is a monument for a Finnish great man, Runeberg. Besides that, the park is just a park

Porvoo is a small town an hours bus ride from Helsinki. Rune berg park is right next to the tiny bus station and market square. The park is named on Finlands national poet. His museum home is close by and there is also traditional Runeberg...More

Great park to relax after exploring the downtown. It has lots of sitting places, so it is worth visiting it during the sunny days.

Very well kept municipal park. Nice for just a wander through. There is a large statue of the town's famous son, the poet Runeberg.

Thank George M
