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.

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.

I have been to Porvoo several times and under the sun, it is a good place to wait for the bus and playing cards, have a break and games!

It's just a tiny park full of drunkards and a tiny statue in the middle. I'd walk through it once but that's enough.
