    Children's Tile Circle

    Children's Tile Circle

    A circular artwork, crafted by potter Richard Miller, has been created to enable local children and families to feel a connection with the Park.
     
    The names of 320 children, living close by at the time of construction in 2009, each with their own tile, have been incorporated, together making a circular artwork. 
     
    The Children's Tile Circle was formally unveiled by Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex on 8th July 2010.
     
    At the centre of tiles is an olive tree, "the tree that feeds the children" according to Sophocles. It is also a symbol of peace. The tree is from Valencia, on the eastern coastline of Spain and is between 50 and 75 years old.
