Outdoor activities and culture
Kalasatama is surrounded by the sea on three sides. The most central park – Kalasatamanpuisto, which will be built in the mid-2010s – will be an urban recreational area that will also provide a venue for a diversity of events. Via the new Isoisänsilta bridge you can walk to Mustikkamaa in only a few minutes. Mustikkamaa is the recreational oasis of the area, and through the island you can also reach the Korkeasaari zoo. In the future, a pedestrian and bicycle route will run along the shore from the mouth of the Vantaanjoki river via Arabianranta and Kalasatama to Merihaka.
If you love the ambiance of an urban, vibrant city culture, Kalasatama and its surroundings are an ideal place to live in. The former power plant of Suvilahti nowadays provides facilities for various studios, artists and creative businesses, and it is the venue for the popular Flow Festival. Also the Teurastamo area nearby offers a wide range of hip events from Farmers’ Markets to block parties.
