Edvin’s path, Aleksis Kiventie 59

Along the fitness-path in Asevelikylä a lot of Outsider-art can to be seen. The
path is named after Vaasa-born artist Edvin Hevonkoski. He was inspired by
Finnish politics and literature. Besides art, you’ll find trench, military shelter
and smoke-sauna. The park has twice been rewarded as the best Outsider-
art park in Finland.
