Parks and Green Areas
The green environment includes parks, forest parks, street green areas and playgrounds. The city aims to create a clean and enjoyable environment for Espoo residents and maintain cleanliness in cooperation with citizens. The rich and diverse nature of Espoo provides a good starting point for a green environment while promoting sustainable development.
Green area management is based on Espoo´s 10-year green area programme. Prepared in cooperation with residents, the programme takes into consideration e.g. special regional characteristics. Planning and constructing green areas makes the creation of a park possible, but a park also requires maintenance. Management measures vary depending on the season. The only measures carries out throughout the year are waste collection and the monitoring and repair of playground equipment.
