Edvin’s path, Aleksis Kiventie 59 (by order only)

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