A series of Bronze statues - lifelike art works depicting some characters from former years. The children playing by the river, and leaping into the water is startlingly realistic. Good Fun.

A simple statue depicting the importance of the river. Chidren saw this as their playground and was very important to everyday life. Near to Cavenagh bridge.
