Halssila is one of the districts of Jyväskylä, Finland, located about three kilometers to east from the city center. The population of the area is about 6 000.[1] Halssila was merged into Jyväskylä in 1941.[2]

Halssila started to develop in the 1920s when factor workers started to build houses in the area.[3] Halssila was known as a working-class district, but the reputation started to change in the 1960s after the area started to grow faster and the old labour movement became to fade away.[4] In the 1970s the construction of new neighborhoods, mainly made of apartment buildings, was started.[3] During the 2000s and 2010s other new neighborhoods were constructed.[5][6]
