General

The playground is located in a valley between two Metamorphic rocks. From the rocks of the area can clearly be seen the tracks of the ice age. In 19th centurythe area belonged to a tenant farmer called "Kiilatorppa" from Herttoniemi estate. A map from 1936 showed that this area was just a field. [ [http://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuva:Roihuvuori1936.jpgKartta Roihuvuoren alueesta vuodelta 1936] ] .

The Park's name, "Tuhkimo" comes from the fairy tale Cinderella(Tuhkimo in Finnish). The park has been particularly popular with families. The playground is surrounded by Roihuvuori forests, but in the south it ends in "Tuhkimontie" (street).
