An arts trail will be launched over the Easter holidays in Arnot Hill Park, showcasing over 25 sculptures, murals and art installations scattered around the park.
The art work has largely been created by local families and community groups, working with professional artists. Some of the art work includes wood carvings using felled trees created by Redhill Academy and willow sculptures and mosaics created by families as part of holiday activities.
The official launch of the arts trail is happening in the school holidays on Tuesday 8 April from 1-4pm with free arts activities taking place throughout the afternoon in the Bowling Green Pavilion and next to the play park.
The free of charge activities include:
- Designing and making new art work for the park
- Storytelling workshops at 2pm and 3pm in the Rose Garden and at 2.30pm and 3.30pm next to the play park
- Guided walks exploring the arts trail at 1.30pm and 2.30pm starting at the Bowls Pavilion.
After the launch, visitors can collect trail guides and activity sheets from the Civic Centre, Bowling Green Pavilion or from the kiosk in the park. These will also be available to download from www.gedling.gov.uk/artstrail
