We spent a lovely Sunday morning at a playground called Mäki-Matin perhepuisto. It is just a short walk away from the nature museum we visited the day before.

The flying fox was a favourite among the older kids, my younger one took me on a fast, loud and very imaginative drive on racing cars and we all found the rock troll forest quite cute. I believe there are plenty of events too, at least in the summer, as there was an outdoor stage and a cafe (now closed) too.
