Exercise is an element of well-being for people of all ages
Exercise is an element of well-being for people of all ages: it maintains mobility, slows down the rate of muscle loss and strengthens bones. Staying active and fit is especially important for older people as it delays the changes brought about by ageing and also prevents neurological disorders, such as dementia.
Financing decision year 2022
The alliance and plans for the sports park to be built in Kokkola will be completed by summer 2022. Construction work is scheduled to begin in 2023, and the project will be completed in 2025.
The next important step is the City Council’s decision on funding, which can only be made in spring 2022 once the alliance and plans are ready.
The new large indoor arena included in the concept will make it possible to organise events such as concerts and conferences.
The premises will also be suitable for exhibitions or trade fairs. High-end restaurants and the services that they will provide will guarantee great events.
The joy of sports for everyone
The concept includes excellent sports facilities for people of all ages and abilities.
New training ice rinks, an indoor running track, an ice rink, a basketball court and a gym will ensure that doing sports will be a joyful experience. Young people in particular are certain to be interested in the different facilities and equipment.
The plans also include facilities for medical services, physiotherapy and a test laboratory. There will also be a press room, which can be turned into a classroom during the day.
