The Espoo Hobby Path offers free recreational activities for children and young people during school days at their own school or in its vicinity. On the Hobby Path, you can have fun and learn in a new hobby, and may even find your way to a more goal-oriented hobby.

You can try out hobbies with friends or alone, and you may also find new friends in connection with hobbies. You can participate in hobbies regardless of your level of expertise.

The offering of the Espoo Hobby Path will be increased during the autumn and at the beginning of 2022. In accordance with the wishes of children and young people, there will be, for example, culture and art, hands-on activities, gaming and coding. The Espoo Hobby Path is a good complement to the free sports activities already available.(extrernal link)
