Photo-a-day 271: Hebburn Riverside Park

20120927-210941.jpg

This is one of the sculptures to be found in Hebburn Riverside Park, which is not to be confused with the Tyne Riverside Country Park which I’ve shown you before.

In addition to the sculptures like that above, there are a number of artworks in Hebburn Riverside Park, including these carved wooden waymarkers, each of which features a different image:

But perhaps the most famous artwork is the one I don’t have a picture of… Flash@Hebburn by Charles Quick, installed in 2009. This consists of twelve 8m columns with solar panels and blue and white LEDs on the top. These flash in patterns which reflect Hebburn’s industrial heritage, apparently. But to me, trying to attract people to a public park at dusk by promising a “Flash” just seems like a bad idea all round…!
