During the winter and spring the Kuhankuono recreational area and hiking route association has made some renovations at the hiking routes: a new compost outhouse has been built at Rantapiha by the Lake Savojärvi. It has two departments and the other one is accessible for disabled. The summer 2018 was hot and dry and there were great difficulties for hikers to find places where they could fill their drinking water bottles. The situation is a little better this year because the foundation has aggreed with the entrepreneur couple from Toivolan Kievari that a new water tap for hikers to use will be installed at Toivolan Kievari. The water tap has been opened in April 2019.
Turku Region Traffic Föli has made a decision about the continuation of the public transport connection to the National Park during summer 2019. There will be 6 two-way weekday connections from and to Turku to the core area of Kurjenrahka. On Saturdays and Sundays there will be 10 two-way connections.
The public transport connection starts on 22th April and goes on over the summer until 22nd September. This is a great possibility for example school classes and day care units to use this inexpensive connection to visit the National Park.
