Geocache Description:

[FIN] Helppo peruskätkö.
[ENG] Easy basic cache.


[FIN] Helsingissä Kruunuhaan edustalla sijaitseva Tervasaari on saanut nimensä siellä sijanneen tervan vientiä harjoittaneiden kauppiaiden varastosta.

Lautakauppias Petter Heidenstrauch vuokrasi saaren lautavarastoksi 1800-luvun alussa ja rakensi saarelle terva-aitan, joka ainoana säilyneenä rakennuksena on nykyisin käytössä ravintolana. Saarta ja manteretta yhdistävävä Tervasaarenkannas rakennettiin 1939, jonka jälkeen saari toimi kaupungin varastona ja talvisin lumenkaatopaikkana. Saarella toiminut sementtivalimo siirtyi pois 1970, jolloin Tervasaari avattiin kokonaan kaupunkilaisten käyttöön.

Nykyisin saari on Helsingin kaupungin puisto, jossa on leikkipaikka lapsille sekä koirapuisto.

[ENG] Tervasaari (Tar Island) located in Kruunuhaka, Helsinki is named after its use for pine tar storage by traders.

In the early 19th century, plank trader Petter Heidenstrauch rented the island to store planks and also erected a house for tar storage. This is the only remaining building and is currently used as a restaurant. The land bridge connecting the island to the mainland was built in 1939, after which the island was used by the city for storage and a snow dump in the winter. Tervasaari had a cement casting station until 1970, when the whole island became available to city residents.

These days the island is a Helsinki city park, with a children's playground and a dog enclosure.
