Tiilikkajärvi National Park has been doubled in size
Tiilikkajärvi National Park has been doubled in size 1.6.2023. What does it mean to Metsäkartano Youth Centre, then? After the enlargement, the #nationalpark and its #naturalwonders are only a step away from our front door. Metsäkartano is practically in the middle of the national park or at least in its armpit. Such a great opportunity for our #youthwork, #educationaltrips, and #naturevacations!
Tiilikkajärvi National Park is now the second largest national park in southern Finland.

At the same time, it safeguards the preservation and development of our operating environment and will certainly increase interest in the area and Metsäkartano as well..."
