Suurpelto is a growing park-like district in the middle of Espoo. The guiding stars of its construction are sustainable development, lifelong learning, new forms of services, internationality and family-orientedness.
Suurpelto has more than 4,000 inhabitants, and the number is estimated to reach 14,000 by 2050.
Excellent bus connections link Suurpelto to other parts of Espoo. The nearest metro station is that of Urheilupuisto. Some feeder lines also take passengers to the Matinkylä metro station and to Tapiola via Niittykumpu.
In Suurpelto, nature is always near. Keskuspuisto, a natural-state forest that serves as Espoo’s central park, is just a walk away. In the summer of 2017, a Garden of Love was opened in Suurpelto. The residents may plant their own fruit trees in the garden.
