This route is a scenic exploration of the south waterfront section of Tampere, featuring parks and paths along Pyhäjärvi Lake. There are good options to combine with other Tampere waterfront routes.
Start near the Ratina Bridge, and follow the Eteläpuiston rantapolku path through Southern Park (Eteläpuisto) for up to 2.6 km to Atlaspuisto Park. It’s a fairly narrow path along the lake, with trees and water views. For the return, retrace your steps and conclude the route with a lap around Ratinan suvanto, including the Laukonsilta pedestrian bridge. There’s a running track at Tampere Stadium
Add-Ons: Additional waterfront paths: north along our central Tampere Tammerkoski rapids path; or south to Vihilahti Park
