A recent article in the local newspaper got me intrigued. The article discussed a place that has a whole bunch of “Concrete sculptures” of different local animals. Of course, I had to go check it out 🙂 Its on the North Side. So when you drive from town to the East, head up Frand Sound Road to cross the island. At the top, instead of heading left to Rum Point, take a right. Then drive maybe 1km (.6mile) Its on the left hand side.
Here is the spot and you are looking for.
Here are the statues. They are BIG. Difficult to appreciate the size. The top of this guy’s head is probably close to 5ft high. Head to tail i’d say at least 10ft long. Impressive work.
Even some flying fish 🙂
Crab was quite cool. Its also very big!
Claudette the crab … get it? 🙂
Even some concrete chickens and chicks
Of course there were some of the real thing on hand 🙂 I suspect someone here feeds them since they followed me around and seemed to expect food.
If you are in the area or driving around on the North Side (its <10 mins from Morritts/Reef Resort) and is well worth the stop. I am sure most kids would also enjoy this. There is no entrance fee – free is always good!
Here is the newspaper article in case you are interested.
