Mäkkylä, which is situated by the boundary between Helsinki and Espoo, is a subdistrict of the Leppävaara district and features amazing recreational opportunities within arm’s reach. Right next to it lies Perkkaa, which holds numerous parks with cycling routes, play areas and nature trails. Mäkkylä has day care centres and schools but no commercial services. This is not a concern, however, as the transport links to other parts of the region are excellent. Leppävaara is only one train stop away, and the Sello shopping centre is located in the immediate vicinity of the Leppävaara railway station. You can also hop on a local train to access the wealth of services in the Helsinki city centre in no more than a few minutes. Car owners can easily travel within the Helsinki Metropolitan Area as the Ring I and Turuntie highways run through the adjacent Leppävaara district.
