Nice destination for bike tour, only short distance from downtown, you can stop on the way at Teurastamo area. Kivinokka has beaches and bird watching platform with nature path. Area is full of small cottages, kindly respect their privacy and remain on the "road".

This is a traditional summer cottage area for the not-so-wealthy families and a public park for everyone to enjoy. Back in the fifties (?) a family could rent a permission to build a small hut and the area contains several hundread huts without water, electricity...More

The green area of Kivinokka is split to several sub areas, and you can walk around it on good paths. The allotment gardens are near the metro rail, and between them and the sea 600 small huts have been built by Helsinki people to enjoy...More
