Info signpost for the jetty below Halistenkoski
A signpost for the canoeing jetty below Halistenkoski.
The northern shore area below Halistenkoski, which houses a canoeing jetty and a new canoe storage, needs a signpost through which the users of the area can be informed. The area is fairly remote from Halistenkoski rest area and cannot be seen from the road. The problem in the area is the littering of the shore areas.
A signpost attached to the wall of the canoe storage could be used to give instructions about moving around in nature and fishing in the area. The information should be available at least in Finnish, Swedish and English. Enclosed is a picture of the possible location of the signpost. Attaching the signpost to the canoe storage would make the overall appearance of the area cleaner. Currently, the storage wall looks somewhat incomplete. The signpost will match the visual appearance of the City of Turku’s guidance concept and the way in which contents are presented.
Summary of the plan
A multilingual signpost with information on the use of the shore area below Halistenkoski, implemented in accordance with the City of Turku’s guidance concept.
Improves the pleasantness and cleanliness of the area as well as informs the users of the area.
