Sports field

Pöyliövaara sports area

The Pöyliövaara sports area is located about 1.5 km from the centre in the direction of Ranua. The sports field has modern athletics facilities and a Saltex concrete turf in the central area of the field, which was installed in June 2013. The former sand pitch was a combined surface for football and baseball. The javelin and hammer throwing areas are located on the adjacent gravel ball field.

In winter, a 1 km cross-country skiing track and a Pöyliövaara-Pitkävaara illuminated cross-country skiing track with a round trip of 8 km depart from the field.

In summer, the Pöyliövaara-Pitkävaara trail and the 1, 2, 3 and 5 km trails are suitable for walking/running and cross-country skiing.

There is also an 18-lane frisbee golf course and fitness ladders.

The maintenance of outdoor and sports areas is the responsibility of the city’s technical services tel. 040 544 8015
