Jätkäsaari mini meadow

A nice urban mini meadow has sprung up at the entrance to Jätkäsaari district in Helsinki. There is surprisingly rich flora growing in the barren soil between the sidewalk and a bike path. It’s really nice to see at least a glimpse of wild nature in the concrete jungle of Jätkäsaari. Hopefully the city will let the mini meadow flourish.


New neighborhoods of Helsinki, Part II – Jätkäsaari

We visited Jätkäsaari to see how the recently vacated cargo port of Helsinki turns into a neighborhood for 17 000 residents and 6 000 jobs. The construction will go on until 2025, but already Jätkäsaari was well on the way.
