Park meals

The city of Tampere’s popular park meal will continue in the summer 2023. This year, the park meal events will take place from 5.6.–27.7.2023

The park meals and activities are intended for children and young people under 16 years of age. The park meals are from Mondays to Thursdays between 11:00 and 13:00. During the first hour, guided activities such as exercise, crafts, games, play or music will be organized. The actual meal begins at 12 noon, offering a free meal for children and young people.

The meals are open to everyone and there is no need to register in advance. We hope that those who come for the park meals bring their own dishes with them. In this way we can contribute to sustainable development.

The food is prepared by Pirkanmaan Voimia. Park meals have a vegetarian day once a week. Unfortunately, we cannot promise a fully vegan option for these vegetarian days. See the menu on their website (in Finnish): eRuokalista
