Description of the outdoor recreation area
The City of Helsinki bought the forest estate known as Dahlbacka in 1946. The Finnish name Pirttimäki was soon established as the area’s new name. After years of acquisitions, the area has grown to its current size of over 430 hectares.
There is a café in connection with the main building of the outdoor recreation area, and the café also manages the reservations for the area’s sauna and club room. The club room is also suitable for meetings and training sessions. Reservations can be requested either by phone at +358 (0)45 123 7040 or by e-mail at email@example.com (Link opens default mail program)
