Good News everyone! The grand unveiling of the artwork and digital signboard conceived and created by Jeanette Lee occurred on Tuesday July 12 at 7:00 pm. These wonderful pieces of artwork were originally created to accompany the sign on Westminster Highway , but it was decided that they would be appreciated far more as an addition to the garden. The artwork began with consultations between the artist and local school children on what they believed to be “Nature” and lead her to develop each of the unique pieces from reflections on those discussions. After many months of hard work in her studio (and eager anticipation on our part!) the sculptures have finally been installed. Come by the park either before or after the grand unveiling to see these fun additions to the garden, they are located just beside the Nature House around the wooden deck. Also keep an eye out for us at the Salmon Festival! We’ll be out with our Urban Wildlife collection again, stop by and find out about the animals that we share our neighbourhoods with.
