Kuokkala bridge

Completed in 1989, the Kuokkala bridge is one of the best-known Jyväskylä landmarks and an impressive sight to behold in its evening lighting. The 480-metre bridge connects central Jyväskylä via Lutakko to the Kuokkala district. A shipping channel from Lake Päijänne to the harbour of Lutakko passes under the bridge.

Seppo Uuranmäki’s artwork Keinuja (Swings) has been hanging at the Lutakko end of the bridge since 2002. At first sight, it can be easily mistaken for a real person.
