Arrival

We recommend coming to Törnävänsaari by foot or bicycle. Törnävänsaari is a small island in Seinäjoki river that can be entered from several directions: from direction of the Törnävä Manor House, summer theatre and from direction of Huhtalantie over two different bridges. Bicycle parks are located close to the entries and they have been marked with signs. All entries are accessible and the roads are wide and sand-covered.

Parking

There is a parking lot opposite Törnävä S-Market. We recommend cycling, walking or bus for residents coming from the city. Please note that you can not drive or park a car in Törnävänsaari area.

Accessibility

The Löytöretki trail goes partly along pedestrian and bicycle paths, partly along a forest path. The forest path is not accessible. Make sure to treat the pristine nature of Ruutipuisto nature conservation area with respect. Please do not touch or move the decorations or signs along the trail. Ruutipuisto nature conservation area is located north of Törnävänsaari. Ruutipuisto can be reached from the north from Björkenheimintie near the Björkenheim Bridge, from Törnävänsaari through Brykärinpuisto and from Törnäväntie by turning to Ruutipuistontie and crossing the Lemmensilta Bridge. An accessible sand road runs through Ruutipuisto. Several forest paths meander in the Ruutipuisto area, but they are not accessible. In Pikkuprovinssi’s journey of discovery you can choose between two trails: the accessible road or the forest paths in the park. Ruutipuisto is a magnificent area for outdoor activities, and visitors should remember to be respectful of the environment.

Toilets

Toilets and an accessible toilet are located next to Törnävänsaari cafeteria. The accessible toilet is equipped with a baby changing table. Both toilets have the possibility for hand washing. Toilets are open during 16-21 May: Mon-Tue 9-14, Wed-Fri 9-20 and Sat 10-18.
