GOLD STAR MOTHERS PARK

Artist Robert Schelling cast seven bronze relief sculptures for the three gateways to Gold Star Mothers Park on Gore Street in East Cambridge. In the artist's words, his sculptures "celebrate forms that accompany us in the moment, that we all share in nature, culture, sports, and our daily lives." At once playful and mystical, Schelling's abstracted motifs mark the experience of leaving the urban complexity of the neighborhood and entering a park that invites play, rest, and recreation.

Renovations to Gold Star Mothers Park, which were completed in September 2006, included installation of new playground and water play equipment as well as improvements to pathways, landscaping, fences, signage, and lighting.
