Meilahti Arboretum is a beautiful park a short distance from the Seurasaari openair museum. The purpose of the arboretum is to introduce people to plants such as trees and bushes, used in landscaped areas. There are lovely flowerbeds and other vegetation, and this is the perfect place to get to know more about flora or just unwind. The arboretum is very userfriendly; there are guideposts at convenient intervals, and tags next to individual plants. The footpaths are perfect for a relaxing stroll and offer plenty of nice views. The flora in the arboretum includes both typically Finnish and more unusual plant varieties. Some date back to 1967. The arboretum also has an extensive collection of rose bushes.
