Perkkoonpuisto nature trail 
is built in transmission line 
right-of-way in Tampere

The city of Tampere and Fingrid have cooperated on a project to restore an outdoor park running through Perkkoonpuisto right-of-way in the Multisilta district of Tampere. The goal is to manage nature and landscape in the area and promote its recreational use.

Part of the park is a nature trail developed for children – as a so-called “bug trail”. The varied terrain and humidity conditions in the area provide diverse habitats: sunny meadows attract many species of insects and butterflies while a swampy area in the hollow is a good environment for dragonflies. The Perkkoonpuisto right-of-way is a protective area for Fingrid’s 110 kV transmission line.
