It's easy to feel at home in Masala, located in the eastern part of the Kirkkonummi municipality. While living in your carefree Joo apartment, you'll have plenty of free time to enjoy everything that Masala has to offer. To help you get started, we listed some of our favourite spots in the area.
Living in Masala: everything's within walking distance
It takes less than 10 minutes to get from Joo Kodit rental apartments to the grocery shop or train station. Jump on a local train to reach the centre of Kirkkonummi in 7 minutes and Helsinki in around half an hour.
Get fit at Joo.Arena and Masala Sports Park
Masala is a fitness enthusiast's dream. You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to all things sports, whether you enjoy exercise classes, the gym, or football. Indoor exercise activities abound at Joo.Arena, which offers everything from yoga to dance, racket sports, climbing, and laser shooting. As a Joo resident, you'll get a discount on the Joo.Arena membership fee. Read more about the exercise options at Joo.Arena (in Finnish).
For outdoor sports, head to Masala Sports Park, where you'll find an artificial turf pitch, a tennis court, and a beach volleyball court. We also challenge you to test out the accuracy of your throws on the Masala disc golf course!
Get to know your neighbours at Joo Olohuone
In this common room for Joo Kodit residents, you can get to know your neighbours and spend fun times together. As the name suggests, Joo Olohuone, which is Finnish for Joo Lounge, is an extension of your home at the Kirkkonummen Manhattan, Soho or Brooklyn apartment complex. It's an ideal place for remote working, board games, or a chat over a cup of coffee – you choose!
A summer's day at Hvitträsk
A trip to Hvitträsk, situated only 4 kilometres away, is the perfect way to spend a beautiful summer's day. The leading Finnish architects Gesellius, Lindgren and Saarinen built this atelier home on a great big hill at the start of the 20th century. Today it's a museum with a wonderful garden, where you can enjoy a picnic while marvelling at the lake scenery. There's also a pretty beach for swimming and plenty of blueberries to pick.
Packed your picnic basket yet?
If so, we hope you like Hvitträsk as much as we do! For even more fantastic days out, we put together this cool checklist for everyone who calls Masala their home.
