Viljandi County, Sakala Recreation Area
Nature conservation works are taking place in the area between the road and the lake. Access to the tower may be difficult.
The observation tower at Lake Parika is accessible by a boardwalk. The site is excellent for a quick excursion for travellers on the Tartu-Viljandi road. A short walk takes visitors to the observation tower at the edge of the Parika bog, where they can safely watch birds in the bog and on the lake.
