Tarvasjoki residents enjoy the peace of the countryside, surrounded by two beautiful rivers and many rapids. Tarvasjoki has good day-to-day services, but if needed, you can easily reach the centers of Lieto and Turku via Highway 10.

Where two rivers meet 

Tarvasjoki was an independent municipality until 2015 when it joined Lieto. The area is located in the northeastern part of the city and offers quiet living at the junction of the Paimionjoki and Tarvasjoki rivers. Where the two rivers meet is Tarvasjoki’s densest residential area. In addition to the central residential area, there are several small villages in Tarvasjoki.

You can drive to the center of Lieto from Tarvasjoki along Highway 10 in just over 15 minutes, and it takes about half an hour to reach Turku. Lieto is part of the Turku region's public transport, and residents can use Föli to commute. Anyhow, a car is a useful means of transportation for many.

Local services and active associations enrich everyday life

Tarvasjoki has good essential services, such as a primary school, a school library, and a brand-new sports hall for everyone to enjoy (see locations on the map). The high school can be found in the center of Lieto. Tarvasjoki also has a well-being center, which offers short-term emergency housing and regular health services.

The history of Tarvasjoki dates long back, as the area is believed to be up to 700 years old! You can learn about its history at the Tarvasjoki Museum. Perhaps due to its long history, there are many active village associations in the area. For example, the Suurila village association operating in the northern part of Tarvasjoki organizes events throughout the year, for example, the annual Suurila Opera Festival.

In addition to the two beautiful rivers, Tarvasjoki has three different rapids, which are at their most impressive during Fall and Spring. Tarvaiset ry has built a nature trail along one of the rapids, Knaapinkoski, for locals and visitors to enjoy!

Local associations provide also diverse activities. Tarvasjoen urheilijat organizes football and ice hockey trainings and the village actually has an ice rink built by the community members. For culture enthusiasts, Tarvasjoen Nuorisoseura is the right association with summer theater and other cultural activities.
