An oasis in the industrial city of Varkaus
Appearing as an oasis in the industrial city of Varkaus, the new activity area creates a place for exercise and sociality for all citizens in the local community. The place is an initiative intended to create a local area that inspires an active lifestyle for residents of all ages and activity levels, to enjoy. By combining fitness equipment, a playground, and outdoor furniture, this place creates the optimal setting for bringing the community together. Integrated perfectly into the surrounding nature, the outdoor fitness area, as well as the playground, sets the stage for social interaction while being active.
There may very well be 150 to 200 people in this area.
