There's a beautiful arboretum/cafe in the centre of this that MUST be visited! Mallard ducks nearby, outside in a pond. What's not to like?

Ainola Park is part of the bigger Hupisaari City Park. Besides the beautiful park, the Hupisaari island is host to the Northern Ostrobothnia Museum. Also, next to the park are Oulu Museum of Art and the science centre Tietomaa.
