Garden and the yard area

Kotkaniemi is a significant destination in terms of garden and building history. It introduces the life of the enlightened people of the early 20th century in the countryside. During the restauration implemented by Senate Properties in 2016-2017, the yard area was restored to its look during Svinhufvud’s presidency in the 1930s. The garden contains a large number of traditional plants.
