Myllypuro has been built in the middle of rugged rocks and forests with respect for the surrounding natural environment. Nature is easily accessible everywhere in the area.

On the northern side of the Kauppamyllyntie road, impressive, almost vertical rocks and a rocky forest can be found along with a group of ten giant’s kettles.

There are also other interesting areas of rocky terrain in Myllypuro. One of them is Korkeakallio, where some of the best examples of Helsinki’s old ground fortification’s artillery batteries can be found. The area of ground fortification is a protected site.
