Located between the Turunväylä highway and Espoo Central Park, Kuurinniitty is a district dominated by small residential houses and buildings. The area is popular among families with children and provides excellent opportunities for outdoor recreation, thanks to nearby Central Park. In winter you can get your skis waxed and go explore the ski trails, in summer you can hike through the forest trails, and in the autumn you can take the whole family picking berries or mushrooms.
Kuurinniitty has a local grocery shop, but other services, schools and day care centres are a few kilometres away. The adjacent Turunväylä provides fast access to other parts of the Metropolitan Area by car, and the area also boasts good bus coverage.
