I found a gem & visited The Herttoniemi Manor Park - a wonderful oasis, surrounded by busy roads and modern life of Helsinki. The park dates back to the 1760s, and it got its present look in the 1810s. The park is divided into two parts: one part is a regular Baroque-style garden with flower plantations, the other part is an English style landscape park with ponds, gazebos and wildlife.
In the manor’s purely Baroque-style garden, long lime alleys, lawns and ornamental shrubs form the overall look. I was totally mesmerised by the park’s gigantic limes, maples and oaks and I gladly share my gorgeous experience with Astrid at Mein Freund, der Baum - Tree, my Friend. No more presentations of these stunning different species. Perhaps the oldest date back to the early years of 1800.
The park was so gorgeous that I’ll tell you in separate posts of the Baroque style garden
& The wild English style garden.
