Neighborhood Sports Sites Program

The city has been actively implementing the Neighborhood Sport Site - program since 2013. There are more and more sport sites added all the time, so we are on our way to construct the best ensemble in Finland.

Neighborhood sports sites are sport-environments that are suitable for a wide range of users in and around residential areas, and they have no divided shifts or charges. Jyväskylä is the first city with more than 100,000 residents that has completed a comprehensive report of the city’s neighborhood sports sites and a development plan until the year 2020.
