Helsinki Ice Park is Packed!

Posted by Janne Saarikko on January 29, 2007

Finland is also suffering from the climate change. Southern Finland had permanent snow only a week ago – a month behind the statistical first permanent snow.

This is bad for people visiting Helsinki. No snow in the winter wonderland? So why bother?

City of Helsinki has solved the problem together with some creative people from companies Image Match and Korjaamo Experience.

They created an ice park called Jääpuisto in the very center of Helsinki, right next to main railway station!

Now, the ice park is packed with people, both locals and visitors. Since it’s opening in late November, tens of thousands of visitors have had their moment of joy.

If you don’t believe, check out the video.
