The Mound is located at the southern end of the Kauppiaankatu Street, across from the Mustasaari Church. The road leading up to the Mound is steep and not a suitable ascent for everyone. Cars can be parked in the parking lots by the church or Vanha Vaasa museum. The area today functions as a green space, with views of the nearby surroundings. Peaceful and isolated spaces are formed by vegetation orientation on the hillside. The Mustasaari Church is visible in the east, farmlands spread out in the west, and in the south is the Kingsbarn Park in the middle.
The Mound is an appropriate site for visitors and excursions during the whole growth season. During winter, it is well worth going up to the top of the hill along the trails in the snow to take in the breathtaking scenery. However, there is no longer an open view over the whole Vanha Vaasa city center, similarly to the artwork by art teacher J.G. Hedman portraying a still treeless hillside. The most impressive flora of the area include the old hardwood deciduous and foreign coniferous trees.
