A new sculpture park is shaping up a Mount Vernon trail near Nature Park in a more artistic direction.

The Mount Vernon Sculpture Trail, celebrated at an Oct. 14 ribbon cutting with four inaugural pieces of art, was borne out of an idea sparked by the derecho of 2020. Soon, the partnership between the Mount Vernon Area Arts Council (MVAAC) and the City of Mount Vernon’s Parks and Recreation hopes to draw a variety of benefits for those who live, work and pursue recreation in the city.
  • What: Four sculptures by two different artists at the Mount Vernon Sculpture Park.
  • Where: The trail that connects Nature Park, 730 First. St., from Seventh Street SE to First Street NE in Mount Vernon. The park is located three blocks east of downtown Mount Vernon’s stop light on First Street. Parking is available nearby at the First Street Community Center, 221 First St. NE.
  • When: Four sculptures are installed now with the hope of adding at least one or more a year going forward.
  • Cost: Free
