Pollinator Highway Bike Tour
Sun, 14 May at 13:00-15.00 (6km)
Start: Hiiu Rimi (Pärnu mnt 386)
Finish: Mustjõe village square (between Tarna street and bike path)
Pollinator Highway is a meadow-like natural environment rich in species, a green corridor and a space for people to move through city districts.. The Pollinator Highway runs along a former railway embankment and today’s high-voltage line corridor. Its name refers to an already existing movement corridor which pollinators (butterflies, bumblebees and bees) and other groups of animals use to move from one green area to another.
The tour starts in front of Hiiu Rimi and ends at Mustjõe village square. The route passes through various districts of Tallinn such as Vana-Mustamäe, Hiiu, Astangu, Väike-Õismäe, Veskimetsa and Mustjõe. A comprehensive landscape architectural sketch was completed for this area last fall. In the spring of 2022, the installation competition was held, and its entries were opened last summer at Pollinator Highway. Come enjoy the bike tour with the whole family and celebrate Mother’s Day in nature.
The area will be introduced by Merle Karro-Kalberg, one of the authors of the landscape architectural solution for the spatial part of Hiiu-Mustjõe, and Ivo Arro, Architect and Urban planner at Tallinn Strategic Planning Services.
