Nummela 'GATEWAY' Wetland Park, Finland

General
National Id: 
Finland_02
Site name: 
Nummela, Municipality of Vihti, Uusimaa Region, Southern Finland
Summary: 
In 2010, the Nummela Gateway Wetland Park (2ha), Finland was constructed both as water environment mitigation landscapes and as urban park. Monitoring of the Nummela Gateway wetland park over a period of three years shows that constructed wetlands rapidly self-establish, resulting in an increase in biodiversity and the establishment of several ecosystem services (e.g. erosion and flood control, and reduction of pollutants in runoff water). The constructed wetland also provides a range of other benefits including opportunities for recreation and education.
