Esplanadi (Swedish: Esplanaden), colloquially known as Espa, is an esplanade and urban park in downtown Helsinki, Finland, situated between the Erottaja square and the Market Square. It is bordered on its northern and southern sides by the Pohjoisesplanadi (North Esplanadi) and Eteläesplanadi (South Esplanadi) streets, respectively. Aleksanterinkatu runs parallel to Esplanadi.

Designed by the architect Carl Ludwig Engel, the park was originally opened in 1818.

The eastern end of the park houses the Kappeli restaurant, which opened in 1867. In front of the restaurant is an outdoor stage, which hosts numerous live music performances. Centered in the park is a statue of Johan Ludwig Runeberg by his son Walter Runeberg. Other public art pieces include works by Viktor Jansson and Gunnar Finne.
