Made a short walk in Koivusaari – on the western side of Lauttasaari. Koivusaari today is occupied by wintering sailboats. The new western line of metro is being build on the island at the moment. There are plans to turn tiny island to “maritime residental area” of 4000 residents so the shores will be transformed to quite different in coming years. The protected meadow, the huge rock and cliffs at the tip of the island will remain untouched.
There is a lot to see on such a small island, almost in the middle of Helsinki. Busy Länsiväylä highway is at the back and the calm sea in front, quite strange combination.
