1/10 Purpose of the survey

    This is a survey for residents concerning recreational areas, routes and services in Espoo. 

    The aim is to determine how the current recreational areas and routes serve residents, and what wishes the residents have with regard to their development.

    In the context of the survey, recreational area refers to various recreational areas, green areas, park areas, areas for outdoor recreation and sports areas you may use in your free time throughout the year. The term recreational route refers to various outdoor recreation, walking, cycling, canoeing, skiing and riding routes, nature trails and other routes you may use in your free time. Recreational services are various outdoor recreation services, sports services and other services offered in the above-mentioned recreational areas and routes.

    The first part of the survey concerns the use of recreational areas, routes and services, while the second one contains questions about their development. In the final section, we will highlight some topical themes regarding general planning in Espoo.

    The results of the survey will be published during 2015 on the city planning website at www.espoo.fi/kaavoitus, and used in the preparation of local detailed plans and master plans.

    The survey will be open from 1 December 2014 to 28 February 2015. Filling in the survey will take approximately 40–50 minutes.
