Amongst the Tallinn parks and gardens on offer, there is the park at Tornide väljak (Towers Square) from where there are excellent views of the city’s Medieval wall, and Shnelli Pond (in Toompark), an elongated moat where ducks gather. Downtown’s largest and most famous park is Kadriorg, a vast area of paths, ponds, manicured gardens and fountains centred around a Baroque palace that was built by Peter the Great.

Kadriorg Park Tallinn

Measuring nearly 250 scenic acres, this urban park features the symmetrical Swan Lake and a promenade leading to the Kadriorg Palace. A magnificent northern baroque palace surrounded by a vast garden, built by Peter the Great for his wife, Catherine I, in 1718. Designed by Italian architect Niccolo Michetti, the grandiose palace also includes an art museum where you will enjoy a spectacular foreign art collection.

Described by one visitor as ‘beautiful’…
“The extensive grounds include sculptures, ponds, beautiful shrubs and flowers and lots of places to picnic or just rest. But the most important site is Czar Peter’s Palace. The interior still has some of the decorations as well as minor pieces of art and is definitely worth seeing. The grounds behind the palace are also nicely planted. When you leave the palace, continue further into the park to see the presidential palace, Peter’s Cottage and the modern art museum (even if you do not like modern art, the you should take a look at the building).”

In 2011 the Kadriorg Park received a truly wonderful addition in form of the Japanese garden. The garden was designed by renowned landscape designer from Japan, Masao Sone.

2. Botanical Garden
In addition to a broad collection of greenhouse plants, this garden features five extensive outdoor collections including the Arboretum, the Rose Garden, perennials, bulbous plants and annuals. The Botanical garden host specialised exhibits of beautiful, sensual, flagrant and exotic flowers. There is a difference theme every month covering such themes as; medicinal and poisonous plants, exotic fruits, taste and smell, mushrooms, various cutting flowers, and much more.

The best time to go is late spring and summer.

3. Kakumäe Coastal Park
Kakumäe Coastal Park Tallinn

Kakumäe area is famous for its beautiful sandy beach surrounded by a 12 hectare coastal park. In 2007, a kilometre long lit “health path” was established here with sport equipments and park benches along the way. Sport courts and children’s play areas can also be found in the park.

Buses leave for Kakumäe beach from the Balti jaam railway station in central Tallinn. The beach has changing cabins, a shower, catering, children’s playgrounds, areas for ball games, ice cream stands, a free parking area and an area to park bikes.

4. Harjumägi
Until the Komandandi street improved access in the 19th century, Harjumägi had been quite difficult to reach. Since 1887 different outdoor cafés and entertainment facilities have operated from here. The hills, collectively known as Harjumägi (Harju Hillock) were where young people met during the 1980’s to exchange music records smuggled in from the West. Today Harjumägi offers a great view over the recently rebuilt Freedom Square, The Monument to the War of Independence was put up in 2009. The renovated Freedom Square is a popular gathering point for citizens where many different events take place.

5. Toompark
Toompark is formed on the former earth fortification ground around the Shnelli pond. The pond is the only remaining part of the moat once surrounding the city. The pond gets its name after the city gardener Schnelli whose garden and house were situated here in the 19th century. In 1903 the Patkuli stairs starting from the viewing platform and connecting the upper Old Town and lower Old Town were opened here. At the same time the rest of the park was reconstructed. After the plans of Anton Soans a polygonal fountain was built by the pond and a rockery established. At the back of the park, under the slope of Toompea, a stadium was built for use of the central city schools. In the snowy winters a snow city is built here.
