Urheilupuisto station

Urheilupuisto metro station is situated in Niittymaa, at the northern edge of Jousenpuisto Park, south of the sports grounds. Its street address is Jousenpuistonkatu 2. The themes of the station are energy, motion, youth, strength, growth and colour. Unlike other West Metro stations, Urheilupuisto metro station is not constructed in bedrock. The station building is designed to allow daylight to reach the escalators all the way to the platform level. The metro station was designed by Arkkitehtitoimisto HKP Oy.

Tapiola’s Urheilupuisto area is a centre of physical fitness and top-level sports that is suited to sports-minded people and armchair athletes alike. The area’s broad range of sports includes women’s and men’s Finnish basketball championships, the men’s floorball league, the Mestis ice hockey league, the coming season of the Veikkausliiga division of Finnish football, and figure skating. Also in the pipeline is the construction of a new football stadium that seats 6,000 spectators. Construction on the project is expected to begin in 2020. The Exhibition Centre WeeGee is also located right around the corner.
