Dougherty Exhibit at Wegerzyn Gardens

Dougherty Exhibit at Wegerzyn Gardens dubbed “A Wiggle in It’s Walk”. The sculpture done by woven wood artist Patrick Dougherty . It took more than 1000 volunteer man hours to create. Dougherty created a nearly 200 foot long tunnel that coils  around Wegerzyn’s North Plaza.  It’s woven entirely of willow branches that had been encroaching upon the fishing lakes at Englewood MetroPark, In Dec of 2013 it will be added to the compost at Wegerzyns Gardens.

As you can see the grand kids went crazy. They were chasing each other inside the tunnel round and round. It made me very dizzy 🙂 Wegerzyn Gardens is part of the Five Rivers Metro Parks. It’s FREE and it’s awesome! Enjoy the tour 🙂

    Oh my gosh, funny what triggers the memory, I had a grove of bushes that had a hollowed out area us kids used to play in. This one is cool, to bad it had to go to compost pile, it would last a long time and be enjoyed by many!!
    Stop by this week and join in the WW fun!

    What a great place! The grands do look like they are having a blast. I had never even heard of this place! Sending this link to my little sister in Michigan — it would make a great destination for a motorcycle trip this summer! I want to go to there!
