The main entrances at both ends of Kesäkatu will lead you to the heart of the shopping centre: a covered meeting place and venue for events. The Kauppurienkatu entrance also offers quick access to the Sokos department store. Valkea is located in Oulu, a bicycle-friendly city and the world’s best city for winter cycling. You can park your bicycle next to the main entrance on Kauppurienkatu.

If you are arriving by private car, we recommend the Kivisydän or Valkea parking facilities.
The entrance to the Valkea parking facility (65 parking spaces) is on Isokatu from the Saaristonkatu side. Valkea’s car park has four electric vehicle charging stations. Electric vehicle charging is included in the parking fee. You must bring your own charging cable.
Kivisydän (900 parking spaces) has two entrances and exits. Hallituskatu 1: this ramp is located at Torinranta (marketplace). Hallituskatu 20: this ramp is accessible from Uusikatu, on the corner of Otto Karhi Park. You can reach Kivisydän from Valkea by two routes: use either the main lift lobby’s lifts or the Rotuaari lifts, which you can reach by walking through the Gina Tricot outlet.
Some shops in Valkea offer their customers arriving by car a rebate on their parking fees. The amount and terms of the rebate vary for each shop and restaurant. Read more about the parking fee rebates here (in Finnish).
