Masku Municipality

 

The Masku Municipality is located just north of Turku, in the province of Western Finland and it is a part of the South West Finland region. The municipality is unilingually Finnish. The municipality has previously also been known as ”Masko” in old Swedish documents.

Current population of 9,694 and officially the municipality was founded in 1870. The history goes back several hundred years before that.

Askainen and Lemu municipalities were consolidated with Masku at 2009.

A marine climate dominates in western parts of the municipality, and forests dominate the eastern parts. There are 62 islands, of which Livonsaari Island is almost half of Masku’s land area.

The beaches formed in the rubble holes are also known as “Masku’s Riviera” with clean ground water. There are also beaches by the sea with sauna for free or for rent.

Outdoor actvities such as frisbee golf, fishing, bird watching, picking berries and mushrooms available on beautiful hiking trails and playing on the excellent 27-hole golf course Kankaisten Golf is absolutely a must for golfers.

There are three medieval churches, Masku, Lemu and Askainen and two castle/manors Louhisaari (Villnäs) and  Kankainen (Kankas) in the municipality.

Historical persons from Masku are Hemminki Maskulainen and the Marshal of Finland, Baron Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim.
