This story is about: Figgate Park, Edinburgh
The Friends Group for the Figgate Park recently asked local school children what was special to them about their local Park and what they wanted to see painted under the road bridge that runs over the Figgate Burn in the Park. Pupils made art work that is currently being exhibited in two local libraries. Their artwork and ideas helped to inform and inspire professional graffiti artist Ian Tayac with his final design which has now transformed the underpass in the Figgate Park.
The response and feedback from park users has been fantastic and the Friends Group hope the project will continue to be a positive focus of conversation amongst park users in the park and in the local community.
Art Under the Bridge was funded by the Duddingston & Craigentinny Neighbourhood Partnership Fund
