Housing and services

The Greater Matinkylä area is home to 41,000 people, and the number of inhabitants is expected to grow as urban infill picks up pace.

The Iso Omena Service Centre is a new public service concept that makes it easier for Espoo residents to take care of their everyday matters. The Service Centre includes a library, youth services, a maternity and child health clinic, a health centre, mental health and substance abuse services, Kela’s service point, the city’s Service Point offering a variety of services and guidance, and laboratory and medical imaging services by the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa (HUS). 

The services at Iso Omena attract visitors from all over Espoo. Completed in 2001 and extended in 2018, Iso Omena is the second-largest shopping centre in Espoo and includes more than a hundred speciality stores.

In addition to basic services, there are private day care centres that offer services in various languages, a Steiner school and an upper secondary school in the Greater Matinkylä area.

The Matinkylä sports park has ice rink, two artificial turfs, three tennis courts, a skate park and a parkour area, a BMX track and many other opportunities for sports and exercise.
