The Urheilupuisto station (formerly called Jousenpuisto Station) will be situated in Niittymaa, at the northern edge of Jousenpuisto park, on city-owned undeveloped land south of the tennis halls (aerial photo). The station will be characterised by the proximity of the sports park and versatile sporting opportunities ranging from tennis and floorball halls to an indoor ice-skating rink.
The surroundings of the station are undeveloped, offering a wealth of opportunities for the development and further construction of the area. The station designs also allow for construction on top of the metro station.
The entrance to the station will be located at the western end of the station, along Koivu-Mankkaan tie. The ticket hall will be located just below ground level, and the platform will be around 27 metres below ground level.
