We got assigned to make the Vääksy river park a more inviting and memorable experience for residents and tourist alike. The area is a lively summer destination, currently known for the summer theatre and the Päijänne house. In the general plan, a long-term solution was envisioned with the park at the centre of Vääksy tourism.
Local residents, operators and event organisers have been taking part in the design process with open minds and great interest. During the process, new event and business ideas were created to extend the usage of the area from summer to all year round.
The masterplan was created in collaboration with Studio Puisto Architects in the spring of 2017. The municipality will realise the plan in several phases. The design for a water-themed adventure park is under way.
