Ruskeasuo sports park

At the heart of Ruskeasuo is Ruskeasuo Sports Hall, which was completed in 1940 as a horse riding ring. In the early years the Hall served a number of different functions. In 1962 the Hall was adapted to suit use for other kinds of sports. Major improvement works were completed in 2000.  Sports that can be enjoyed at the Hall include table tennis, badminton, handball, boxing, and weightlifting (gym activities).

Horse riding is also one of the main forms of sports practised at the Sports Park. The end of the Sport Hall still features a ring for riders, as well as two outdoor riding fields. One of these played host to Olympic medal competitions in 1952.

Beside the Sports Hall are two stables, which are home to around 110 horses. The Sports Park’s sand field is a venue for cricket, American baseball, and baseball in the summer, and in the winter visitors can skate on the field. The Sports Park is located in the south of the Central Park, which opens up onto fast and natural walking and cycling trails, amongst others, around Helsinki.
