Mansikkapaikka | Our community’s happy place

Kansalaistalo Mansikkapaikka ry’s ”Mansikkapaikka” is a community centre and a meeting place where all the residents of the Lielahti-Lentävänniemi area in Tampere are welcome.

One can meet other parents and their children in our Family Clubs, join various groups for adults such as the arts and crafts club, book club or just pop by for lunch, to read the daily newspaper or watch TV and enjoy some coffee – you can even buy some of Mansikkapaikka’s specially curated coffee for your home too!

Our Family Clubs are mainly spaces to freely socialize with other parents, and the children get to hang out too. In addition, the staff, or sometimes guests, come to facilitate arts and crafts or singing sessions in our clubs. We have various groups for grown-ups only, too. Please have a look at our weekly programme and find something that is suitable for you and feel free to suggest any new ideas for the community at Mansikkapaikka!

Lunch is served from Monday to Friday between 11 and 12.30 (4€/adults, 2€/children). We also rent our premises on weekends and on evening times for private use (eg. kids birthday parties).

For more information about Mansikkapaikka, please contact Mervi.
