What is Green Loop?
Concept Plan of the Green Loop
The development of Green Loop is based on the concept plan, which was approved by the Board of Urban Planning and City Infrastructure in 2017.
The Green Loop is a chain of green spaces and lush cultural environments around the city centre of Jyväskylä. On the Green Loop, you can enjoy all the benefits of green. You can exercise, refresh yourself and have a good time.
Green Loop is a new type of central park and outside livingroom. It consists of nearly 200 hectares of green areas and lush cultural environments around Jyväskylä city centre.
The Green Loop can be regarded as a local recreational area for around 20,000 residents. That is around one in every six Jyväskylä residents.
You can access the Green Loop from many locations. From the city centre, the most convenient way to access the Green Loop is to walk towards Harju. Lutakko Harbour by Lake Jyväsjärvi is also a good place to start. You can walk along the entire route or part of it. The Nature Lover’s route runs from Harju to Tourujoki via Taulumäki. Friends of architecture and cultural environments are advised to head towards Viitaniemi, Älylä or Seminaarinmäki. Follow this sign to stay on the route.
