This lovely park is centrally located on the shores of Tammerkoski rapids. The park got its current shape in the 1930s when a power plant dam was built.
A festive promenade was built on the new shore strip, which is still accentuated today by arched lights, decorative plantings, and sculptural stones raised from the rapids.
There are still a few trees left that were planted in the early 20th century. Today they are huge.
At the northern end of the park is Aimo Tukiainen's sculpture Virvatulet from 1971. The sculpture is a monument to a Finnish soldier.
Next to Hämeensilta bridge, you can find the Puisto restaurant. One of the five Scandic hotels in Tampere is named after this park.
