Housing and environment

Wihertoimi’s mission is to design, build and manage the city’s green spaces, parks and forests.

Greenspaces aim to create a comfortable, thrilling and historic environment. The planning is based on the lines outlined in the city plan. The general planning of parks and green areas is made mainly by the city’s own work. Plans are approved by the Technical Committee. There are about 600 hectares of landscaped parks.

The goal of building green areas is to create an attractive environment and to preserve and increase the value of green spaces. Parks and playgrounds are built mainly by the staff of the city.
