Nomadi In Parks and Gardens

Citynomadi’s handy tool Nomadi has been recognised as a perfect guide in parks and gardens. Many of our customers have developed a green, flourishing and flowering route for their visitors. 

There was a popular Garden route connecting Jyväskylä city to the housing fair area this summer. 

Southeast135º and Porvoo city have a good number of nature trails to follow, not to mention Tampere museum’s female statue route The Girls Of Tampere. 

Greenbuilder’s magazine of Finland called Viherympäristö have written a nice article about Citynomadi’s possibilities, both Housing Fair and Southeast135º green trails.
