The Niittykumpu metro station opened on Saturday 18 November 2017, when metro traffic on the Ruoholahti–Matinkylä section started up.  The Matinkylä metro station construction contract was implemented by  Lemminkäinen Infra Oy.

The station’s interior design presents a strong and unique identity reflective of a summer meadow. Inspired by the name Niittykumpu (Meadow Hill in English), both sides of the platform’s walls are covered by the work of artist Mari Rantanen, depicting the red and green shades of fireweed and grass found in meadows. The metro station was designed by Arkkitehtitoimisto HKP Oy.


Niittykumpu metro station is located at the corner of Merituulentie and Haukilahdenkatu, at the address Niittykatu 2, and is part of Niitty’s shopping centre.

The station and entrances are wheelchair-accessible.
