If you are traveling with kids you might want to visit Kupittaa park as it offers room for playing, some free and some reasonable priced activities for kids and when you get tired you might look the several football games played around this park

Probably the best park in Turku! A lot to see for everyone: playgrounds, swimming pools, animal park, traffic park for kids, well maintained grass...

Great heated outdoor pools, inflatable castles and fun miniature city where kids can drive pedal cars complete with street lights and patrol cop :-)

Kupittaa Park is located close to the city center of Turku - just a 15 minute walk from the riverside - and it contains many types of entertaining activities for all kinds of needs and various groups of people. There are many playgrounds for kids of different ages, with more types of activities than usual, some birds and other animals for kids to see, and beautiful park areas for picnics etc., and nearby there are also sports fields and a football stadium etc.. You can buy ice-cream in the kiosk. There's also a really nice restaurant that has a nice and affordable lunch daily, as well as cafeteria products.
The best feature of the park - in my opinion - is the open-air swimming pool area, which is located in the centre of the park. There are several pools of varying depths and even some water slides - but basically its not a water park but more about swimming and picnicing. There's a nice lawn and a little playground for kids, and there are also life-guards keeping an eye on the swimmers. You can bring your own picnic but there's also a cafeteria where you can buy some fastfood and icecream.
This place is popular with local families and can be quite busy on hot summer days, but somehow there always seems to be room. There are lockers for valuables, changing cubicles, toilets, and it's also wheelchair accessible - but I am not so sure if you can enter the pools from a wheelchair. The only thing that is not so great here are the shower facilities - there are basically showers only by the pool and no saunas, so if you need a more thorough cleansing and would like to warm up after swimming then this place is not your best choice. There are quite limited toilet facilities as well so you don't necessarily find where to dry your hair etc. But otherwise it's a great place for a little splash - or even for more serious swimming! The longest pools are 25 m but most people tend to take it easy in the other pools so there's usually room for doing conditioning swimming.
My visits to Turku in the summer are not perfect without a visit here!
Their open during the summer months practically all day - from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and a couple of times during the summer they even have open until 1 a.m.!

In my opinion the best and largest park near Turku center. A great place to sunbathe, have a picnic or do some outdoor activities.
