Riverside Park, Glenrothes

Peoples' Mosaic

Mosaic completed by volunteers

During the Riverside Park Festival 27 to 29 th July 2012 a major work of town art was started in the park.
Members of the public were invited to take part in this complex and large new mosaic.
Many people, including children, volunteers, art students, passers by, Fife Council staff, and Friends Of the Riverside Park,
helped break up and place some of the many thousands of individual tile pieces.

General view of the Mosaic

Complete mosaic from the bridge

The mosaic is situated beneath Leslie Road Bridge.

Adjacent to the path which joins the pond end of the park with the area of the park closest to the town centre (the Hippos area).

The Mosaic, which is 14 metres long, is a major work of art in terms of scale, design and method of completion.

Kerry Wilson was the artist who designed, drew, supervised the volunteers and worked long hours to complete any unfinished portions.

The red arrow pointing to the white star shows the 'you are here' point of the park. Can you spot the pillars of 'The Heritage', Leslie House

and The Titanic?

This section shows the area of the park closest to Leslie.

There is a connection between Leslie House and the Titanic. Birds, flowers and a rainbow make this a very colourful section.

By the end of October 2012 the mosaic was nearing completion. Volunteers were requested to do the final polishing and cleaning process which should leave the project as a wonderful legacy for Glenrothes. We would like to thank the following companies who provided materials for the mosaic. The main sponsor by far was the Ceramic Tile Warehouse in Kirkcaldy who donated copious amounts of tiles, cement and grout. They also supplied a large quantity of cement and grout to us at trade price. The other sponsors of tiles were Decorland in Thornton and Tile Boutique in Kirkcaldy. All surplus tiles were donated to the Buckhaven Beehive project.
