There is also a mid-rise area of Suikkila in the middle of the area, which consists of apartment buildings built mostly in the 1970s. The name comes from the Suikkila mansion located close by, and many of Suikkila's streets carry the names of Turku's sister cities such as Göteboringkatu derived from Gothenburg.

The northern part of Ruohonpää is developing quickly as there are newly built apartment buildings rising in the vicinity of Länsikeskus shopping area. In addition, the largest industrial factory in Pitkämäki, Pukkila Tile Factory founded in 1874, ceased its operations and its surroundings will be transformed for residential use.

The area has good private and public sector services such as two schools and various grocery stores. The Länsikeskus shopping center is also within walking distance located in Teräsrautela. There are also plenty of parks and a running track in the middle of the forest in Suikkila suburb. The nature reserve called Muhkurinmäki is in the southern part.
