Forest Playground

This fun year-round play park was designed with the help of local children and is situated just 900 metres from Mäntyharju market square.

In summertime the park is a great place for mountain biking, climbing, balancing and playing in general. In wintertime kids can cross-country ski around the mountain bike track and sled down the hill. Inflatable sleds are recommended, as the bank at the bottom of the hill is quite steep.

The park can also be enjoyed well into the autumn thanks to its recently renewed lighting. Even small theatre and other performances can be held in the playground. Right next to the park is a sports ground, a hiking and mountain bike trail leading from Mäntyharju to Repovesi National Park, and cross-country skiing trails.

The map of the park was designed by Heli Pukki, while the graphic design for the information boards along the children's nature trail was created by Terhi Kastehelmi Aalto, a stone artist from Mikkeli. Stone art and small artworks, such as birdhouses, were created for the park together with local children.

Useful information

Kisala Sports Hall offers excellent indoor facilities that can be used for changing diapers, going to the toilet and filling up water bottles, for example. Parking is also available for around 100 cars.

NOTE: If Kisala is closed, you can use the indoor toilets and shower facilities next to the football field behind the park.
