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).
