<p>In the beginnig of the 1960's a somewhat secluded section of Alppipuisto Park behind the Helsinki Hall of Culture (Kulttuuritalo) was partitioned to create a fine gardening exhibition area on the rocky hill. The resulting park was the result of collaboration between the City of Helsinki and the Gardening Association of Helsinki (Helsingin puutarhaseura). A small stream flows through the park and into a basin. Paths were constructed out of slabs of slate. The park was named Lenin Park in 1970, the 100th anniversary of the birth of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870-1924). Lenin Park is a fine example of how an attractive and diverse green area can be created atop practically bare rock. A significant portion of the woody plants were planted especially for the gardening exhibition, and they continue to thrive here.</p>
