The Kivipuisto stone park at the top of Kivesvaara in Paltamo

The stone park is located at the top of Kivesvaara in Paltamo and allows you to experience the local nature. Over 40 rock samples present the history and composition of the Finnish and Kainuu bedrock.

Massive stones have been placed on the sides of a gravel trail on the forest floor. The magnificent landscapes of Kivesvaara come into their own by the trail. The trail is accessible by foot or with a wheelchair.

Stories of an imaginary world based on tales and mythology accompany the exhibition.

The stone park can also be used for teaching purposes, as experts in geology have been involved in designing and implementing it.
