Storheia Arena shall promote public health
An important part of Bodø’s application (for European capital of culture, editor´s note) is to include a larger audience and practitioners. Storheia with its accessibility for people with different functional levels is an excellent example of how we can do this in practice.
I think it will be terrific. It will be a very nice arena, for those who ride bikes, roller skiing, hikes, have a stroller or use a wheelchair.
I think it is absolutely amazing that it has been paved from Husby and all the way up to Storheia. It makes the municipality more inclusive, and has helped me to experience a part of Vesterålen that was previously inaccessible to me.
