Description:  This colorful 600-square-foot mosaic filled with trees, flowers, butterflies, owls, and playful silhouettes of park-goers depicts the theme of "A Day in the Park." Neighborhood groups raised money from private and public sources for park improvements, including the mosaic, which decorates the formerly blank wall of the swimming pool’s pump house. The artists held workshops for community members to produce their own special mosaic creations, which are sprinkled throughout the final design.
