Gardens Parks and Urban Spaces
1996 by Alec Peever. A slab of yellow sandstone carved with Isaiah's prophecy: "INSTEAD OF THE THORNBUSH WILL GROW THE PINE TREE AND INSTEAD OF BRIARS THE MYRTLE WILL GROW. THIS WILL BE FOR THE LORD'S RENOWN FOR AN EVERLASTING SIGN WHICH WILL NOT BE DESTROYED. ISAIAH 55V13". This refers to the care required to maintain the environment. There are also wooden staithes reclaimed from the Tyne, metal entrance-ways designed by local schoolchildren, a pebble mosaic of the British Isles and five signposts to five European countries. Commissioned by Tyne and Wear Development Corporation.
