Rental apartment in Hervantajärvi

Urban rental living close to nature

The inhabitants of Hervantajärvi are lucky: huge outdoor areas start almost from the front door and you can still reach Hervanta's services in a few minutes by tram. Nearby there are lakes, forests, sports venues, outdoor areas and wild berry fields.

A new home to around 2,900 residents, the Hervantajärvi district is located south of Hervanta and Ruskonkehä, roughly 8 km from the centre of Tampere. Hervantajärvi is the terminus for tramline 3, on which Hervanta is just 5 minutes and the city centre 20 minutes away. Amenities are easily accessible on foot, too: it is just a 10-minute walk to Duo shopping centre in Hervanta.

The blocks of buildings and curving streets in this developing district blend in naturally with the terrain. Despite its location within the city, Hervantajärvi is surrounded by nearly pristine nature. The greatest assets of the district are indeed its proximity to nature, its location in the vicinity of several places of work and study, and excellent transport connections.

Here are five tips for getting to know the district better!

1. Dream terrain for nature lovers

The Hervantajärvi hiking area and nature reserve is an ideal location for walking, skiing, mountain biking, trekking and trail running. The area has around 10 km of signposted hiking trails and two rest areas with campfire pits. The Viitastenperä rest area on Hervantajärvi lake features a unique, organically designed lean-to shelter complex complete with woodsheds and dry toilets.

2. Heinurinmäki park with its many amenities

The Heinurinmäki activities and exercise park will feature playing fields, skate park, BMX track and outdoor gym. In winter, the artificial turf-covered playing field will be iced over for ice-skating. The BMX track will be designed for full compliance with the requirements of the sport and it will be suitable also for beginners. Ground-level elements accessible for skateboarders of all skill levels are envisioned for the skate park. The outdoor gym will also be well appointed. The park is roughly 500 m from the Hervantajärvi tram stop.

3. Make a splash in clear swimming waters

The Tampere region has 160 lakes and ponds with an area of 1 hectare or more, and the quality of the water at the ones closest to habitation is subject to regular monitoring. Hervantajärvi lake is among those ideally suited for recreation. One of most inviting swimming spots in Tampere can be found on the shores of Hervantajärvi lake: the waters at the peaceful Hervantajärvi beach are clear and warm in summer. The green by the beach is the perfect spot for picnics and sunbathing. Fun for family and friends!

4. New playground for children of all ages in Joutsenpuisto

A new playground will be completed in autumn 2022 in Joutsenpuisto park, located in the Hervantajärvi district close to the tram terminus. Joutsenpuisto playground will be situated next to the daycare centre that is to rise at the eastern edge of the park. The playground will be equipped with swings, playhouse-slide, zip line, carousel and spring riders, and of course a sandbox. There will also be seating areas, exercise areas and room for ballgames. The lit playground will have a leafy feel, as it is be edged in trees.

5. Celebrate at Majaranta private sauna

Looking to host a party or a meeting? The Majaranta private sauna and banquet room could be just the ticket. The facilities lend themselves equally well to relaxed get-togethers and more formal meetings. Majaranta can accommodate around 30–40 people. The sauna has room for about ten at a time and it stands right by the clear waters of Hervantajärvi lake, if you wish to take a post-sauna dip. So, what’s the occasion?
