Riverside Park

Urheilukatu 2

- Enviromental structure of the year 2015 -

Our newest theme park was opened on Kotka Day 17.5.2013. Riverside Park is located at the southern end of Kymijoki River's Korkeakoski branch alongside Urheilukatu Street.

Riverside Park is part of the Jokiranta riverside, which is 2.5 km in length; most of the riverbank strip will remain in its natural state.

The park's handsome granite walls, ponds with water-lilies, and splendid flower beds form a marvellous wholeness. The paved paths enable totally obstruction-free access to the area.

The new park is a welcome addition to Kotka's collection of parks. People often forget that Kotka is also the foremost "river town" of Southern Finland.

Time for a picnic?

Riverside Park is a wonderful place to have a picnic in. The granite picnic tables and barbecue facilities are there for all to use free of charge.

The work of art by Antti Maasalo entitled "Alkulähteellä" (At the Source) was unveiled in connection with the official opening of the park.

New playground

A new playground for small children is completed in the Riverside Park. There are lot of nice playground equipment to provide children with interesting and stimulating physical challenges.
