Kokonniemi’s sports center is located in beautiful Porvoo, in the direct vicinity to fantastic parks and recreation areas. The surroundings have a lot of untapped potential, and harnessing that potential helps to increase the resident’s wellbeing. Developing the Kokonniemi area will also make the whole city more attractive.
The plan’s starting point is to increase the level of sports service quality and make the Kokonniemi recreational area a functional hub of leisure time activities. The new design emphasizes developing the servicescape and highlights the area’s strengths, for example the landscaping. The area is made more attractive by expanding the range of activities offered and adding elements that encourage spontaneous play and exercise. The landscaping plan supports the area’s energetic identity as a center for sports, play and community.
