Pros: Accessible by public transportation
Cons: -no tee pads
-baskets are falling apart
-redundant, i.e. Short and open
-very hard to navigate
-long walks between holes
-course plays around a tall grass prairie which makes it very easy to lose a disc
Other Thoughts: If you live in the houses and apartments surrounding the park then use this course to practice. The game appears to be popular with the locals. I saw many groups of men, women and children playing. I would hope that they demand a better course (both design and equipment) from the local park district in the future.

Pros: The course is close to Tali and Meilahti courses.
Cons: The course is not marked that well and there is no real path for the course.

Most of the tees are dirt patches, but Hole 4 has a good concrete pad. I could not find the tee for Holes 2 and 7. Players used a corner in the park's path for Hole 2's tee.

The course is contained in a public park with several paths going through each hole, so people and dogs can stop play at any time really. Also, several holes require the player to throw over public paths.
Other Thoughts: So far this is the worst course I have played in Finland.

Holes 7,8 and 9 are alright for practicing, but a lot of people walk their dogs through these holes, so interference is abundant there. It is very windy there as well.

The course starts at the Southeast side of the park close to the children's playground; Holes 1 and 2 are side by side.

==Hole 7,8 and 9==
I was unable to find the tee or start point for Hole 7. So I picked a location in the field nearby and used two trees as mandatories.

Also, take care not to play Hole 9 before playing Hole 8. After Hole 7 the player needs to walk west of Hole 9's tee, past the dog playground to reach Hole 8.

I would not recommend this course due to interference concerns, signage and overall gameplay. For something better yet similar to Munkkiniemi I would suggest you try Siltamäki.
