An urban centre for exercise, sports and wellbeing
When completed, Hippos will be the no. 1 centre for exercise, sports (including elite sports), health, wellbeing and related events in the Nordic Countries. It will combine exercise research and technological product development into an entity of international importance. The estimated budget of the project is €150 million. Due to its year-round and almost 24/7 activities, Hippos is going to be the main attraction of Jyväskylä, both locally and internationally.
