Just outside the city centre, in the middle of the national urban parklands is Pelle Hermanni Park, a playground open to all. Pelle Hermanni is great for children of all ages - it will keep you entertained for the whole day! It is no coincidence that, in 2014, Pelle Hermanni Park was voted the best playground in Finland.
Play areas to suit all tastes
Explore the pirate ship, climb ropes, swing in the lianas like Tarzan, and go climbing in the Angry Birds park! Take a breather, spread out on the lawn and have a picnic, or pop into Café Viksu! In addition, you can find Pelle Hermanni’s mother’s cottage, his wagon, a small stage with seating, a paddling pool, a gazebo and a clown fountain.
Animals of the Kirjurinluoto Park
Take a walk in the park and admire the animal folk at the Kirjurinluoto Park. Kirjurinluoto Park is famous for its animals, such as young goats, sheep and alpacas, as well as birds. In the summer, the bird area is home to a Java peacock, as well as the regular peacock and his all-white partner, Reaves’ pheasants and Lady Amherst’s pheasants, different hens and cocks, and a collared turtle dove couple. The peacock is the most magnificent bird in the Kirjurinluoto Park. In addition to the birds in the fenced bird area, wild birds like to swim in the ponds in the park. For example, mallard ducks have taken to nesting in the peaceful park. In the summer, you can often see mallard mums taking their little ones over to the water across the lawns.
No wonder you always seem to run out of time at the Kirjurinluoto Park!
