The Activity Park of Simpauttaja

In the area of primary school, Tulikivi-arena and sports hall there's the activity park of Simpauttaja (Simpauttajan liikuntapuisto), which offers multiple activities for the whole family. Five functional sections of the park are the out-door gym, parkour area, grass field, multipurpose arena and several playing areas for children. Along the activity park -project the yard of primary school and its nearby areas were refined also. The park has gotten its name from the Simpauttaja -character, which performs in the book of the local author, Heikki Turunen.

The activity park of Simpauttaja won the Years Sports Act -award in the year 2016. The panel reasoned the choice because the project involved the residents of Juuka expectionally much: "The voice of residents of all ages has been heard. Ideas and feedback have been received from sports community, local school students, teachers and school staff, the Corner of Elli and workers of village societys. The result is an activity park that is suitable for all ages and due to its location, it is also an excellent place for school sports."
