Hautalanmäki playing field and playground is a local sports and exercise venue next to Leikari daycare centre and school. It was completed in 2001 and back then, it was one of six piloted local sports and exercise venues in Finland. The starting points for designing the venue were: exercise throughout life, available to everyone who wants it, and spontaneous, self-directed, versatile exercise close to nature. The area includes a playing field, which serves as an ice-skating field in the winter, a play area for smaller children and a course where older children can do tricks. The nearby forest has trails and a short route with sawdust coating.
Ahvenlampi is a playground located in Kinkomaa, in the residential area of Ahvenlampi. The playground was built in 2013. Equipment is available for children of various ages.
