Kuusiluoto, located at Vanhankaupunginlahti, is a recreational island part of the city's common recreational park areas.
On the island there is an old villa, run by the association VKEK ry. The association takes care of the premises.
You can access Kuusiluoto by duckboards. Starting at the end of Jokisuuntie there are duckboards (narrow walkway made of wooden planks) that take you via Lammassaari-island to Kuusiluoto, a total of 1.2 km. Rubber boots may be needed during autumn time, when the level of sea water might be even 30 cm above the normal.
In the south-west point of the island there is an old dock where you can swim and fish (at your own risk). It is prohibited to make any kind of open fire on the island.
For several years a few sheep have also spent their summer months at Kuusiluoto.
