Träskända Manor Park

Near the bridge over the Glimsin River, grows the park’s largest oak (Quercus robur), which is about 5.5 meters in circumference. This oak is the thickest single-trunked tree in Träskända and at the same time in the whole of Espoo.

We enjoyed a beautiful autumn Sunday visiting this lovely park, the history these trees could tell. There were people sitting by the trees or benches having a picnic, enjoying the low soft autumn light and warmth. Kids running around playing – so idylic.

I had my camera with me, but I forgot the card home so I had to take photos with my mobile. I have to say, the quality just is not the same as it would be with a camera, but you can still see that is is a lovely place to visit and only 20 minutes from home.

History and diverse nature meet in Träskända Manor Park. Manor Park is a nationally valuable cultural and historical environment and one of the oldest nature reserves in Espoo. Cultural-historical values ​​are combined with the old noble forest of the manor park and several rare tree and shrub species as well as fauna. The manor environment also includes an exceptionally extensive and original landscape park.

We can learn a lot from trees: they’re always grounded but never stop reaching heavenward.  

The construction of the manor park began as early as the 18th century, but the park got its modern look during Aurora Karamzin in the mid-19th century, when Träskända was one of the most magnificent manors in Finland.

The current main building in Träskända was built in the 1890s
