I see this sculpture every time i go into the town, i think it is very clever the way the whole thing has been done as the river runs underneath the street.

This is an odd little sculpture thing in the pavement of the street. There are other similar things around as well. No real point to it apart from a quirky oddity in the street to see as you go by. Mildly amusing at first, but...More

Kilmarnock is a lovely pace. Lots of nice coffee shops and a good pedestrianized shopping area. Plenty of charity shops if that's your thing. I would only go again though to visit family.

might just be me but cant see any value of tax payers money on this kind of thing feel the money would be better spent on keeping the area up to a good standard

Very odd to see this in here. Do not make a special effort to 'visit; this place. It is a sculptured stone in the middle of the town centre. There are a few but not really a day out.

As a pavement sculpture it is probably one of the better. But,I disagree with impediments to the pedestrian!

Things you tend to walk by without paying much attention when you are out shopping, but if you sit maybe having a coffee you do really notice them and they are very clever.

I have here a few times but never really paid much attention to the street sculptures. I did today and started at one end of the street to see how many i could find. there very unique and different. Great to see something different .

Whats not to like. Swimmers all the way up the main street. Even on the many many dustbins. Reminds me of my youth when there was nothing to do in Kilmarnock but go to the swimming baths.
