    The Parikkala Sculpture Park (Veijo Rönkkönen Sculpture Park) is a true roadside attraction. Interesting, beautiful, quirky, scary and weird. Entrance fee 2-5 euros. You can also pay by SMS. A definite stop if you're driving by.

    An early morning visit to this area showed up to be rich in birds. Visited various observation locations and was able to see birds on land, in marsh, on water and some migrating geese. Some of our observations were: Thrush nightingale, Willow warbler, Common snipe, Lesser spotted woodpecker, Eurasian curlew, Eurasian bittern, Common goldeneye, Common pochard, Whooper swan, Western marsh harrier and Rough-legged buzzard

    Rantapuisto Swimming Beach (Rantapuiston uimaranta) is a part of Saharanta Outdoor Recreation Area (Saharannan ulkoilualue) in the center of Parikkala. You find a nice sandy beach, a playground, a beach volley court and beautiful walking paths there. This is a very idyllic place, if the weather is good.

    Parikkalan tori (Parikkala Market Square) is situated in the center of Parikkala by lake Simpele. You find some market stalls and a cafeteria there. There is also an interesting servant girl statue named Parikkalan piika (The Maid of Parikkala) there. An old phrase says that "Maids of Parikkala and whitefishes of Simpele are better than anywhere else".
