I recently wrote about the updates to the park – notably Caitinara Bar and the waterfront area. Well, since then, work has continued as we’ve sought to revise some of the park’s layout and make it a little easier to get around and find places.
In particular, the plateau above Caitinara Bar and the 3D art area to the north of it has been revised. Ice Castle by Giovanna Cerise, and a part of the Medici collection, has been moved up onto the plateau, its place taken by a new rocky promontory.
To encourage traffic up to the gallery space from the bar, a new set of steps has been added to the back of the bar, which led up to the gallery garden, emerging alongside both the gallery house and the covered patio. Finally, New steps lead up to the plateau from the waterfront a short distance from the main entrance to the bar, with a second set of steps winding up the new promontory.
The other major piece of 3D art on display at the Park, Reflections at Midnight by Frankx Lefrave, has been moved to the end of the waterfront walk, where it can be more easily be seen and experienced – those who haven’t spent time sitting in it and watching the play of lights and shapes really should drop by 🙂 . The piece is set within its own parcel with music (optional); all that’s need is to set your time of day to midnight (which will happen automatically with some TPVs on entering the parcel).
Elsewhere, the Park Walk has been simplified, with much of the path around the base of the Art Hill removed. The cliffs form the edge of the hill have also in part been replaced, with green slopes now running down to Holly Kai River. We’ve also installed a new gazebo and steps to make finding the way down from the Art Hill to the river crossing and the Pavilion much easier – and for people to find their way from the Pavilion up to the Art Hill.
No landmarks have changed as a result of these alterations, but we hope they give the park more of a natural look and feel – and that you’ll consider dropping by soon ans exploring. All things being equal, art exhibitions at the park will (again) resume in November.
