Relaxing in a traditional landscape 

The Paimio River provides locals with a wide range of recreational opportunities. For example, the Juntola and Askala hydroelectric power plants, nestled along the river, offer splendid spots to visit owing to the stunning river landscape.

In Askala, a highly valued Askala meadow, maintained by the Paimio Region Environmental Association, provides grazing grounds for sheep during the summer months. The Juntola power plant marks the starting point of the impressive Paimio River Valley’s Natura 2000 site. 

There are also two cafés in northern Paimio: Café Atsalea and a seasonal café in Askala, operational during summer weekends, in proximity to the Askala hydroelectric plant and the field. The area comes alive with events held at the wooden village school in Suksela, such as the autumn rural and Christmas markets.  Additionally, the Paimio Local History Museum hosts temporary exhibitions throughout the summer.
