The area that today is known as Tehtaanpuisto park, was an industrial area up until the 1980's. Today the only reminder of its past is the former main building of the Rosenqvist textile factory, which has been converted to a cultural center and renamed Kulttuuritehdas ("Culture Factory"). The park is also a popular place for open-air concerts.

The white building in the foreground is the northernmost building of the Eteläniemi district, which was built in the 1990's and early 2000's after the South Port port facilities moved to the new Halvoo Port in 1992.
