The Pirttimäki and Karjakaivo outdoor recreation areas form an extensive whole. The landscape was shaped by the last Ice Age and is quite hilly. Impressive features include steep cliffs, erratic boulders, scenic lakes and ponds, lush bogs and mires. There is also a 1.8-hectare walnut grove in the area.

The City of Helsinki purchased the Dahlbacka forest estate in 1946. It soon became known by the Finnish name Pirttimäki. As a result of subsequent purchases, the area has grown to its present size of over 430 hectares.
