The former Lielahti industrial area was opened to the public in 2016. The City is enabling various events and activities in the area by, for example, renting out facilities for temporary use and supporting the organisation of events.
Already operating in Hiedanranta is Kulttuuritila Kuivaamo, a venue built into an old drying plant that can be rented for various events. A community of craftsmen and artists has formed in Paja building. In the summer of 2017, Kenneli DIY, an indoor skateboarding hall meeting Olympic standards, was opened in connection with Kuivaamo.
A new circus activities centre, Sirkus Faktori, opened its doors in Kuivaamo in the spring of 2017. The Manor Café Mielihyvin at the Lielahti Manor House is open to customers every day. In addition to the floating garden established in 2016, a floating sauna is now also in the makings in Hiedanranta – the building and design work is being carried out by city residents.
