If you a short time visitor eg. a transit traveler via Helsinki to other distances and have enough time in your stop - then this might be one new experience to have - now it's a time when lakes are begin to freeze - then also swimming in cold water enables - and of course you can taste sauna at the same visit. From Airport approxm. 10 kilometers. During Summer Seasons this is very popular also. Today there are 2 saunas to choose and also bar / restaurant facilities. In surrounding area many sport activities also available.
I think for those who will arrive from other countries and have some free time for extra refreshment - this is one good choice to take.

At Kuusijärvi you can bath in old fashioned sauna and swim in a small lake.
There are two different types of saunas you can choose - one heated with electricity (separate for women and men) and the other two heated with wood which are called smoked saunas (they are black inside and are mixed with both women and men).
One can relax in warmth after swimming in icy water.

This is where a lot of the city areas triathlon fanatics come to train starting early spring when water is only 10-12 degrees. It's a good spot because most triathlons in Finland are organized by lakes, there are no waves and it's fairly shallow and smooth bottom. Also switches are easy to train here with a big parking lot and lot's of good bicycling routes and running trails. A tip, if you do decide to jump in for a session early spring wear a wetsuit and bring a large bottle of hot water, just before jumping in pour the water into the wet suit. Also wear a cap, gloves and shoes if the water is just 10 degrees!

This small lake is in summer absolutely crowded, since it's the only one in East Vantaa. The area is nice for hiking, running, and for.ex. volleyball. Sun bathing and going to sauna are the main reason to visit in summer. In winter ice swimming and sauna are the best in Kuusijärvi.

Kuusijärvi is a hugely popular place among people who live in the nearby areas. When it's warm and sunny this place gets crowded with all types of people; families, youngsters, elderly.. It's also a popular spot to crab a coffee or an ice-cream when enjoying a day motorcyckling around.
There are saunas, conference rooms, a beach, a refreshing lake, basketball and beachvolley courts, and a cafe serving lunch every day (8,50-14€). Keep in mind though that because there are so many people enjoying this quite small place at the same time you'll probably have to wait in line to get your snacks and put your towel down right next to other people.
