What is happening with the ceramic tiles that were previously in the park?

The small ceramic tiles were a great part of the previous space, and we had hoped to reinstate them. We spoke to the artist who led the community artwork, and they let us know that over 1,000 children were involved! But, unfortunately, they were too fragile to be removed and reinstalled.
The larger ceramic tiles were able to be salvaged, and we've offered these to the Warrandyte Historical Society.
The new play space will have a water play area, where we're installing the community art mosaic pebbles created at this year's Warrandyte Pottery Expo. We also plan to reinstate the ceramic drinking fountains within the new design.
We've kept both the artist and our community reference group for the project informed during this process.
