SOME scary-looking wolves and a place to reflect are the latest additions to artwork among the trees set up by a charity which provides activites for youngsters.
APPLE (which stands for Acton Play Projects and Leisure Events) set up a tree trail on and around trees in Acton Park about five years ago and has about seven or eight pieces of art on show at any one time.
The wolves were created by Sam and Jake Barker with children helping out earlier this year. They have now returned following some repairs.
The Honour Tree is a seat around a pine tree with colourful banners hung from its branches. The peaceful setting is designed as place for people to sit and think about the people they love, both alive and those no longer with us.
Created by Edward Parkinson, Vicki Barker and the young people, many of the children made sure they included designs which meant something to their lives.
Barcodes people can scan with a smart phone app give information about the art works and the tree trail as a whole.
APPLE project coordinator Vicki Barker, said: “It makes our local park different from other parks and it makes people think about where they live.
“Our local park is small but it’s extremely well-used and has a large collection of trees. Being more conscious of where they live makes people more thoughtful and responsible towards it.”
