The Towers Square (Tornide väljak) is named after the towers of the city wall next to it; in addition, several church towers can be seen from here. In the Middle Ages, the place was named the "nunnery pasture" (nunnakoppel) because it belonged to the nunnery that was located in the buildings of the present Gustav Adolf Gymnasium.
Today, the former flower-rich green area has grown into a beautiful shady park that has been assigned under nature protection.
There are several open-air events and exhibitions held in the square during the summer. Next to the Towers Square, there is also a children's playground and a fitness complex.
