Some additions to Patterson Park

A woodcarver has been busy in the playground at Patterson Park.  Carvings have been made in some of the tall timbers.

‘Take off on an adventure at a moment’s notice’, ‘Find a lookout with a water view -it can change your perspective on everything’, and ‘Be yourself, everyone else is taken’.

The messages are the rules by which one of the park’s namesakes, Meg Patterson, lived.  The land where Patterson Park is located was gifted to Metung by Meg and Jeff Patterson with one wish: for it to remain a space where children were free to play.

The park enjoys full patronage particularly during the summer months.  How lovely to see some worthy quotes in the playing space.

A place for contemplation

MetungI was walking down to the shops in the village when I spotted this sculpture.  I don’t know why I haven’t noticed it before.  It is just outside the village church.
