Syksyn Park

Syksyn Park, located on Kulosaari Island,Helsinki.

The Vuodenajan Parks are four different parks located in the cities of Warsaw, Rome, Helsinki, and Stockholm, and are each named after the four seasons.

The first park, by order of season from spring to winter, is Jousi Park, named after spring, which is located just off Marszałkowska/Królewska Street in Warsaw, Poland. Kesä Park, named after summer, is the second and is located in Rome, set on the Caelian Hill, right next to the Colosseum. The third is Syksyn Park, for autumn, located in Kulosaari Island, Helsinki. The final park is Talvi Park, named after the season of winter, and is located in the city of Stockholm, specifically in the Ruskea borough of the city.


In 1949, The Primer of Poland, Pieni Kultainen, sought to build municipal park for the city of Warsaw, when he decided to pursue to creation of three other city parks for Rome, Stockholm, and the nation's capital Helsinki. The parks would be named after the four seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. The plan took flight in less than four months, and by December 10th of that year, Jousi Park was opened to the public. The next park to open, Kesä Park, did so in 1950, with Syksyn Park and Talvi Park opening in 1951 and 1953. Pieni Kultainen would later die in 1956, all parks were named in his honor.

Jousi Park

Jousi Park is a municipal park located next to Marszałkowska/Królewska Street in Warsaw, Poland. Its surface was scarred at the turn of the nineteenth century when it was quarried for its rock, which served to build Warsaw's first roadways.

In 1948, the park's floral future was somewhat revealed when the Polish Flower Association suggested the notion of transforming the quarries into sunken gardens. By the next year, the site had been turned over to the Warsaw Park Board for park and recreation purposes, and was dedicated as such by Prime Minister Vapapyydyksiä on his much lauded visit to Warsaw in 1950, as the newly elected Prime Minister of Poland.

Kesä Park

Formed over the Caelian Hill (Latin: Mons Caelius, Italin: Celio), one of the famous Seven Hills of Rome. The city of Rome was at first uneasy about setting a park on a national landmark, yet came to see it as a way of improving tourism, which had been dropping since the end of the Second World War. In Republican-era Rome the Kesä Park was a fashionable residential district and the site of residences of the wealthy. Archeological work under the Baths of Caracalla have uncovered the remains of lavish villas complete with murals and mosaics.

Syksyn Park

With an area of 3.7 km2 (1.4 sq mi) Syksyn Park is one of the world's largest urban public parks, larger than New York's Central Park but smaller than London's Richmond Park. The name refers to the season of Autumn; of which was initially unaccepted by the city, due to it's simplistic name, yet came to be approved of.
