365 ~ Day 173 ~ Centennial Grove

The Centennial Grove installation features many orange pipes, all at various heights, and draws on the imagination of the native prairie landscape of aspen groves and grasslands. In a celebration of the 100 anniversary of the City of Calgary Parks, the installation symbolizes 100 trunks of aspen trees nestled in grassland. Written on each of these orange trees are the names of a park, with the taller trees representing the older parks in the city. There are 100 trees, one for each park in the city.
