What are we going to do

The Factory park is attached to the Spinning Mill Area and is located by the Loimijoki river, overlooking the Kuhalankoski rapids. The park grew alongside the factories and got its first professional gardeners as early as the 1850s, while the Spinning Mill Area was still being built. The park has played its role in the daily lives of factory workers and was a backyard for the rich and powerful. It has seen buildings being built, moved, and burnt to the ground.

Join us on a short walking tour around the park and witness the changes for yourself.

Price: 15€/person
Minimum group: 4 people

Kiitos teille sinne Museolle! Olimme tyttären tyttären kanssa katsomassa paikkoja, joissa hänen 1800-luvun lopulla työnsä 12-vuotiaana aloittanut "mummonsa" oli työssä. Unohtumaton kokemus meille molemmille.
Lämpimästi kiittäen hienosti toteutetusta vierailusta. Sirpa Hämäläinen
