Park and Recreation Commission
The Park and Recreation Commission meets Monday, August 21, at 6:30 p.m. (agenda). The commission will receive a proposal from the Riverside Arts Council and the Mayor's Beautify Riverside initiative to install a 17-foot-tall permanent sculpture in White Park. The sculpture will be designed, fabricated, and installed by Alderette Designs (the same team who created the Lock in Your Love monument on Main St.) as a metal tree.
The cost of the sculpture's installation and maintenance would be the responsibility of the Riverside Arts Council, which aims to unveil the piece at the Riverside Art & Music Festival on October 7, 2023.
