Hi kedgeKent Nice to hear that you are going to visit my home town, welcome! August is a good month to have a nice time here. Kintus P listed actually nearly all places near by which are the most popular and worth of visit. It would help us to recommend places if we know what kind of transportation choices you have in your use while visiting and how many days you have chance to be here. Espoo is not the best place for public bus crossconnections inside Espoo and the trains are moving only south area with one main lane. But it is very useful between Helsinki-Espoo-Kirkkonummi area. (east-west direction, change trains at Pasila station if you want reach Vantaa area) If you have a car on your use things are much more better to reach. Also the information of which part of Espoo you are going to stay could be useful in order to give tip where to go locally. One site which you could be interested of is nationalparks dot fi and choose destinaton leaflet. (national board of forestry pages). Probably you know this already but in case not, check out visitespoo dot fi/en this is the official site of Espoo city, you will find many useful tips from there. You did not tell are you coming at the beginning or the end of august. This has a small meaning which you may value. Espoo archipelago waterbuses are on line every day (except mondays) just until 14.8. after that they drive on weekends to outdoor islands. Summer holiday season for families practically ends at 16.8. because schools are starting. This has an effect to traffic and people amount using services near by when they are "warming up" home again after returning from their summer cottages =D. For fishing look at the possibilities of Porkkala area.
