Saimaa Central Park is a gateway to the nature of Lake Saimaa conveniently close to the centre of Mikkeli. The stunning park area is full of life: we recommend to enjoy idyllic Kenkävero with its restaurants and shops, the beautiful flowerbeds and model gardens in the Mikkelipuisto park, the Pomppulinnamaailma bouncing world, Urpola Nature Centre and nature trail, Kaihu nature trail and frisbee golf course, the outdoor play and picnic areas, campfire sites, and the Kaihu beach and diving tower.
Have a lunch or dinner in restaurant Greeneri or go for a picnic and relax in the beautiful gardens of the Mikkelipuisto park. There is also a barbecue in the Mikkelipuisto area. The Pommppulinnamaailma bouncing castles and activities offer fun and excitement for the whole family.
From Mikkelipuisto, head to the Kaihu nature trail, which runs along a narrow ridge in the middle of the lake. The route continues to the Urpola Nature Centre, which is open in summer. The Urpola Nature Trail is a scenic trail along the Urpola River. Along the trail, there is an old mill building and a campfire site where you can have a picnic. You can take firewood for the campfire from the Urpola Nature Centre.
Come and enjoy the lovely lake nature in the heart of Mikkeli!
