Nuuksio National Park is one of Finland’s 40 national parks.
Nuuksio National Park was established in 1994, the park spreads over an area of forests and lakes in Espoo, Kirkkonummi, and Vihti.

Over 80 small lakes and ponds are found from Nuuksio National Park and they are as diverse as the nature around them.
The Siberian flying squirrel s the emblem of the national park due to its high-density population density there.
The name is derived from the Nuuksio district of Espoo.
North-west from Helsinki, it is the second-closest national park to the capital behind the recently established Sipoonkorpi National Park.
