From the road and walking/biking path, just north of the metro line, between Kulosaari and Herttoniemi metro stations, watch for these signs:

signs to Kivinokka

Turn onto this gravel road, and immediately bear right, following the road (a few minutes walk) until you get to the main Kivinokka gate, where there is a big parking lot. This is where the exhibition area begins. See here for a map of the artworks.

By metro: Kivinokka is within 10-15mins walking distance from both Kulosaari and Herttoniemi underground stations.

By bike: Many come to Kivinokka by bike. It takes a good half an hour to ride your bike from Helsinki city centre to Kivinokka.

By car: From Kipparlahden silmukka street drive approximately 500m along the little country lane until you arrive at the Kivinokka car park.

By boat: It is possible to moor with rowing boats or small outboard boat, but not with larger boats as there are no proper piers.
