Pitäjänmäki is much loved by its residents, and though few know it, the district also has some of the most remarkable parks in Helsinki. There are even rapids that are second in scale only to those at the mouth of the Vantaankoski river. Pitäjänmäki also has a fine example of a modern park design and an impressive playground. In this part of Helsinki, people and industry live side by side.
