Bear Park Cafe started in 2002 as a small summer kiosk . The kiosk opened in spring 2003. Since then, the beautiful Bear Park has been an icon of Helsinki Gay life! The gay kiosk continued for 13 years - in rain or shine. The kiosk building itself was almost 70 years old.
Bear Park Cafe organizes many events during a year - theatre, arts, music and movies. Just keeping locals happy!
