Myllysaari Family and Adventure Park

The Myllysaari Family Park is a popular recreation area near the city centre, on the shore of Lake Saimaa. You can go swimming, enjoy the sauna, work out, do parkour, play beach volley on a great court or try climbing at the Flow Park. The grass areas are ideal for relaxing, in between swimming and exercising.
In the winter, there are two ice-swimming spots at Myllysaari, one at the swimming area and one at the public sauna.

Myllysaari Family Park

Located immediately east of the City Bay (Kaupunginlahti), Myllysaari is, in fact, a narrow and long point that protrudes into Lake Saimaa. You can enjoy a wide variety of beach services at Myllysaari, including a beach with diving platforms, a shallow sandy beach for children, a sledding slide and plenty of green areas. In addition to this, you will find beach volley courts, a playground, an exercise and climbing equipment area, a lakeshore café and a public sauna. The children in the family will enjoy street basketball and doing tricks on the parkour course.
The private adventure climbing park, Flow Park, is a particular favourite of adolescents. A base for rowers and canoers is located on the eastern edge of the area.
The walkways in Myllysaari offer a convenient route for getting around and they are also wheelchair accessible. Recording surveillance cameras cover the whole area and help prevent mischief and littering, while enhancing safety in the area.
There is a swimming place for dogs next to the Myllysaari Family Park.
