Project Description

In recent years Umeå Municipality has made large investments aimed at turning the city towards the river, including the restoration and development of several parks close to the water.

The municipality is taking part in the 2018 campaign Buzzing parks and gardens run by the Swedish Society of Public Parks and Gardens, in collaboration with Swedish Bees, with the aim of help bees and spreading awareness.

A brochure is published annually by the municipality for anyone who wishes to experience the city in full bloom. The brochure can be viewed here (Swedish).

Skate and parkour parks

Speed and precision are in full display at Umeå’s skate and parkour parks. If you’re looking for exciting action right in the city centre, look no further than the skate and parkour parks located side-by-side between the bridges in the centre. Here you can try out the basics for the first time, or do a hard-core session as an experienced practicer.

Skeppsbron

Skeppsbron, below Tullkammaren and the cultural centre Väven, is yet another locale where residents can enjoy attractive views of the river. Visitors are attracted to Skeppsbron all year round due to its proximity to shopping areas. Restaurant boats can be found by the docks.
