As years have passed, Matinkylä and Olari have merged and now form an unbroken urban area.
Excellent public transport connections are Matinkylä’s asset. The Matinkylä metro station and bus terminal are very busy. The West Metro has also brought new housing and services with it.
In Matinkylä, the perks of urban life and the services necessary in day-to-day life are all within easy reach. The shopping centre Iso Omena is a popular shopping and leisure destination. The Service Centre of the City of Espoo brings together a library, a health centre and a number of other public services.
The wide and versatile outdoor recreation and hiking areas of the Waterfront Walkway and Keskuspuisto, Espoo’s central park, await right outside Matinkylä.
