Playgrounds provide both supervised and unsupervised activities for families and school children. Most playgrounds have a wading pool, a playfield and various playground equipment. Some playgrounds have playfields that are turned into ice rinks in winter. The equipment and opportunities for activities vary by the playground.
Playground facilities are also rented for external use, for example for family celebrations, organising activities and meetings in the evenings and at weekends.
In addition to playgrounds, Helsinki has over 200 play sites maintained by the Public Works Department, which do not provide guided activities.
You can find your nearest playground on the map on this page or on the webpage Playgrounds by area.
Helsinki playgrounds provide meals for children under the age of 16 during the school summer holidays. The meal distribution starts at 12 noon. Afternoon activities snacks are also served at the playgrounds. People with food allergies must always confirm the suitability of the food and the ingredients at the location.
