First of May picnic in any weather

In the middle of Jyväskylä, the Harju ridge is one of the city’s most famous landmarks and an outdoor area dear to many Jyväskylä residents. The place has been a sports and recreation center for the citizens since the late 19th century.
JYY’s Member Services Secretary Eetu Heiska moved to Jyväskylä to study in 2008. He has been practicing sports in Harju, but the most important memories have to do with various student activities. Among other things, sled hill with other subject organization actors during the winter and organizing activity tasks for students. Also, the most important celebration of the student’s year is traditionally located in Harju.
“First of May picnics spent here either in sunshine or cold rain are kind of collective memories for students. The atmosphere is always cheerful and relaxed, with good friends and carefully prepared snacks.”
The Harju evening song, played from top of the Harju already for decades, is important to Eetu.
“The type of shared experience of the evening song is attractive.”
