Lanu Sculpture Park is situated in Kariniemi Park, and is an officially protected grove hill near the centre of Lahti. Amidst the wide range of luxuriant vegetation are works in concrete by sculptor Olavi Lanu of Lahti.
Twelve large concrete sculptures by sculptor Olavi Lanu were completed in 1992. The sculptures are both figurative and also feature natural objects such as a boulder, willow tree, or a twisted tree. Meandering footpaths tie the sculptures together into a park like setting. In the summer the sculptures are half covered with foliage, and snow in the winter. The Kariniemi residential area next to the ridge has survived in almost original condition and is a collection of family house architecture of the 1930s and 1940s and apartment buildings of the 1940s and 1950s.
