Private roads are roads that are maintained by property owners and other stakeholders of the road. The road stakeholders are responsible for participating in the building and maintenance of the road according to the benefits it provides for each stakeholder. The stakeholders of the road can organize and form a road maintenance association if there are several stakeholders and/or if the road maintenance based on the principle of consensus becomes difficult.
Parks and other green areas are maintained according to the national park maintenance classifications. The maintenance classification of a park is determined by the area’s location and purpose of use. Parks in the City Centre are maintained more intensively.
Turku City parks are characterized by diversity. Diverse natural conditions of the parks ensure functional green corridors and ecological connectivity. This is why a park can often have areas with different maintenance levels. For example, one part of a park may be classified as a landscape meadow and another as a park forest.
