Parkour track

Parkour is a sport developed in France, in which the idea is to get from one place to another with as little effort and as efficiently as possible.

On the track of the sports park, you will find various walls, bars, obstacles, drums and stones, which can be utilised and used as stepping stones for moving. You don’t need to go to all the places, sometimes you can jump over them too. Smooth movements and body control are important elements in this sport. Ylivieska’s parkour tracks are located at the Sports Park (address Salmiperäntie) and Raudaskylä’s Local Sports Area (address Opistontie 9)

Skate park

Implemented at the youth’s request! The park is used by skateboarders and kickboarders

The long-term dream of Ylivieska’s skateboarders for a proper park was realised in 2015 when the new concrete park was completed as a first in the entire local region. The young people personally took part in planning the site and sometimes were able to help the professionals with construction work. The skate park is managed by Youth Services address Närhitie 2.

At one end of the park, there is a pool or bowl, where you can skate down from one edge to the other. At the other end, there is a place where you can find curbs and boxes suitable for tricks. In addition to skateboarders, the park is also used by kickboarders.

Fitness stairs

Kokonainen treenikerta yhdellä välineellä!

An entire training session with one piece of equipment!

A stair workout has a multitude of benefits. The most significant and visible effects are improved endurance and the strengthening of lower limb muscles. Respiratory and cardiovascular fitness also improves. Ylivieska’s fitness stairs were built in 2019 and they are located in the vicinity of Hyypänkallio, address Salmiperäntie 42.

In 2022, fitness stairs with 200 steps were built in Huhmari’s outdoor recreation area. A barrier-free viewing platform has also been built halfway up the stairs. Os. Huhmarintie 165
