Myllysaari family park

The Myllysaari family park is a popular recreational and leisure area near Lappeenranta city centre by Lake Saimaa. Myllysaari offers opportunities for swimming, sauna, fitness exercise, parkour and beach volley. The green areas have plenty of space for resting between swimming and sports. The beach is gently shelving and child-friendly, with plenty of sandy and green areas. The beach services include a playground, a fitness and climbing area and a waterfront café.

In winter, there are two ice swimming holes in Myllysaari, one at the swimming facility and another at the public sauna.

The east shore of the point has a rowing/canoe centre, and there is a special dog beach next to the area.

The pedestrian and bicycle traffic lanes in Myllysaari are also wheelchair accessible.

The entire area is equipped with recording CCTV to prevent vandalism and littering and to improve safety.
