Located in Tampere, between the districts Atala, Kumpula and Risso, the Halimasjärvi nature reserve area is a nice place for the whole family to spend time outdoors. Best place to walk in and enjoy the nature is on the trail following the Halimasjärvi lake. Part of the trail has newly built duckboards keeping the feet dry. You might also spot a regular guest on the lake, the nesting couple of red-throated diver (please remember to give them space and silence). The area is easy to reach with the local bus to Atala: the closest bus stop is on the crossing of Nikinväylä and Sompakatu, and from the end of Sompakatu there is a trail to the nature trail.
