Living in harmony with nature
Rental apartment in homely Hyrylä
Lively Hyrylä, the centre of Tuusula, will give you a warm welcome. Hyrylä has everything you need for your everyday life: children’s day care centres, schools and lots of leisure opportunities. The Rykmentinpuisto district currently under construction is a great source of pride locally – an urban village of the future where you can enjoy homely life in harmony with nature. You will find a rental home that is the perfect match for your life situation in Hyrylä.
Hyrylä is located close to the southern end of Lake Tuusulanjärvi, around 25 km from Helsinki and 5 km from Kerava, with Helsinki-Vantaa Airport not far away, either. The area has everyday services from health centre to grocery stores and lots of different leisure opportunities for the around 23,000 residents.
From military garrison to the administrative centre of the municipality
In the early 1800s, Hyrylä was just an ordinary rural village, but the starting signal for its development was fired by the establishment of the military garrison in the 1850s. Traders and craftspeople gradually set themselves up for life around the garrison. The completion of the Helsinki-Hämeenlinna railway in 1862 enhanced the area’s attractiveness even further. Industry emerging in the village by the railway line pulled in workers, trade was booming, and craftspeople were needed. And there has been no end to progress ever since.
Culture, education and handicrafts
In Hyrylä you can learn new skills whatever your age.
The children’s day care centre named after local illustrator Martta Wendelin provides early childhood education and care, and there are several primary schools (with one of them Swedish-speaking). There are two lower secondary schools, and the Tuusula Upper Secondary Schools offers special streams for music, visual arts as well as sports.
Completed in autumn 2023, the Monio Upper Secondary School and Cultural Centre also features a community college, a visual arts school, a music school and the Cultural Services of Tuusula municipality under the same roof. The community college operating in Monio provides learning opportunities that are open to all in fields including handicrafts, languages, physical exercise, music as well as visual and other arts. There is something for everyone in the 450 courses available each year.
And if this is not enough, there is the main library of Tuusula across the Tuusulanväylä road for even more culture and education. Food for the soul can also be found in the culture and nature sites along the road by Lake Tuusulanjärvi.
Sports and keep-fit opportunities for everyone
Does your heart beat high for sports and keeping fit? Hyrylä is the right place for the sporty type, as there is a broad range of opportunities for physical activity indoors and as well as outdoors.
At Tuusula Sports Centre you can get the ball rolling on artificial grass or in the indoor football hall. The most serious of exercise enthusiasts will head for Patterinmäki Hill and get their heart pumping on the workout stairs.
Those into working out in the water will also have a splash in Hyrylä: the Sports Centre features a swimming pond with its beach swimming water category being excellent in 2022 and the indoor swimming pool is located next door to Monio Upper Secondary School and Cultural Centre.
Cross-country skiing is also possible in Hyrylä even in winters without much snow. Thanks to artificial snow, the first tracks are ready for you around the Biathlon Stadium at the Sports Centre as soon as the temperatures remain below zero for a while.
How about disc golf? Ford DiscGolfPark is where your mind will rest in the lovely landscape while you get the disc flying. The course features heath forest, dense Norway spruce woods, diverse topography as well as sandy terrain.
At Tuusula Tennis Centre you can release your inner sports fanatic and play tennis, badminton, padel, squash, floorball or table tennis. Bring your own racket!
There is also an international standard bicycle motocross (BMX) racing track nearby. The track is suitable for beginners, leisure BMXers as well as competitive racing.
And if these leisure activities will not provide you with enough of a challenge, there are also plenty of other things to do in the Tuusula area!
