The Espoo public Works Department has started planning an outdoor route for Veininmäki, Laaksolahti. The planning of the outdoor route contains composing a park plan for the Veininmäki park and a street plan for the Runkotie street area.

The route is aimed to increase recreational opportunities for the area’s residents and to improve transport connections. The new outdoor route is planned to loop from Kuusinevantie through the Veininmäki park area. The route will also connect Viinikuja, Veininmäki, Ukinpolku, Latvatie and Runkotie streets. The total length of the route is approximately one kilometre.

The route will be 3.5 metres wide, covered with stone ash and illuminated over its entire length. It will also be maintained in winter.  Benches and rubbish bins, and possibly a small outdoor gym, will be placed along the route.

Project progression

A draft plan of the outdoor route was uploaded on this page in the early 2022 and it was available for commenting through a residential survey by 6th of February 2022. A report on the results of the survey (in Finnish) can be found at the bottom of this page under downloadable files.

We thank everyone for the feedback we received, providing a lot of valuable information for planning the project. Based on the feedback the plan will be updated.

The final plan is aimed to be completed by the end of 2022, and the construction planning will begin after that. The outdoor route will be implemented in the coming years.
