This subdistrict of Espoon keskus was named after Lake Kirkkojärvi, which used to be located on the north side of the area. The area is urban and dominated by apartment buildings. It is still easy to access the soothing green embrace of nature, because the Kasavuori outdoor recreational area is close by. Central Espoo Sports Park with its variety of fields and pitches is also in the vicinity. For those of school age, the area features a school, upper secondary school and day care centre. The nearest commercial services are a short distance away in Espoon keskus.
