Vuosaari hill has been built as a comfortable outdoor area and natural oasis. The recreational area is 95 hectares in size.
There are plenty of routes for hikers of all levels, from easy-to-walk service roads to rocky little paths. Some of the routes provided with signs are difficult to walk in places. Using pushchairs on the paths is not recommended. There is no winter maintenance in the area.
In connection with the main entrance, there are two guide containers that provide information about the place.
Nature trail calling
