Framing the north entrance to the city’s official Civic Center this garden figures prominently in the city’s Affaire in the Gardens bi-annual art show, and is home to two very distinct sculptures . The first, a modern bronze by Tony Smith aptly named “Playground”. The other, Jacquemart’s war-riddled “Hunter and Hounds”, also a bronze, hearkens from a very different period. Flowering Kangaroo Paws fill the oval planting bed, while the decomposed granite paths criss-cross to the four corners for easy access from all directions. A heavily used public restroom, soon to be expanded, is the only restroom facility along this linear park.
