Community children were invited to draw expressions of "neighbourhood and home" at a community day at the new St. Andrew's Park. From these, several drawings were chosen and sandblasted onto rock surfaces. In this way, individual community members' artwork is integrated in a public space, adding to the creative design and linking history, identity and ownership to a community park.
