Live and thrive

Tomtebo strand will offer something for everyone, whether you want to enjoy a coffee at the square, relax in the park, or take a swim in the lake. The area welcomes everyone, from families with children to those moving away from home or those tired of living in detached houses. Here, we plan for sustainable living with vibrant squares, green parks, as well as natural paths and lovely walking and cycling routes.

Close to everything

With proximity to Umeå's central parts and unbeatable nature, it's easy to find favorite spots in and around Tomtebo Strand. Whether it's for an exciting meeting or to recharge your batteries.

Nature experiences around every corner

Outdoor activities or relaxation. Maximum heart rate or active rest. On foot or on wheels.

No matter what you like best, it should be easy to enjoy nature experiences at Tomtebo Strand all year round. Tomtebo Strand will be naturally green - from neighbourhoods to forests and lakes. The neighborhood is being built in close proximity to the natural areas around Nydalasjön and the babbling Kolbäcken stream – places that are being utilized and preserved as the area develops.

Sustainable travel

Tomtebo strand is designed to make it easy to get where you need to go in a sustainable and safe way, without your own car.

The area has plans for wide, fast cycle paths with easy access to indoor and covered cycle parking. Public transport will offer a high level of service and centrally located stops.  If you have your own car, then you will find parking garages located at the entrances to the neighborhood.

Created for tomorrow's possibilities

A great deal is about sharing. For example, heat and cooling, which can be directed to the houses and businesses that need it most at any given time through smart systems. But also, about recycling wastewater and smart solutions that make cycling the natural choice for even more journeys.
